How We Grow

How We Grow

We are not certified organic. So how do we grow?

First

We do our best to care for our soil.  We believe that vibrant, healthy soil leads to strong healthy plants that can fend of insects and disease.  We add natural amendments, like composted manure, use biodegradeable mulch to help eliminate erosion, and rotate crops each season.

Second

We feed our plants with natural fish, compost, and seaweed based fertilizers to keep them strong.  When needed, we also supplement with certain minerals (such as calcium) to prevent deficiencies. 

Third

If our crops get attacked by pests or diseases despite our measures to keep them strong and healthy, we use sprays based on naturally occurring ingredients to control them.  Even though the sprays we use are based on natural ingredients, we are still careful that no residue is left on our produce.
