Growing Practices

 

Because our entire farm is certified organic, we do not use any chemical pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms. We keep our soil healthy and balanced by using compost, cover crops, crop rotation, and certified organic fertilizers with rock powders and micro-nutrients. In doing so, we are able to ensure healthier, more nutritionally dense products for you! We use beneficial insects to control destructive insects and weeds are controlled through mulching, cultivating and a lot of hand weeding!

We believe God created a very complex, magnificent system of life. We are doing our best to farm naturally, using the many tools He has given us. By God’s grace and our hard work, with the wide diversity of crops, we hope to have an ample supply of delicious, healthy produce to meet your needs. 

Our farm encompasses 2,300 acres, with each and every acre being certified organic. The livestock including the pigs, chickens, and beef cattle are all fed organically as well, with access to the outdoors year round.

For more information on our organic certification, check out NOFA-NY crop certification.
