Growing Practices

We often get asked “are you organic?”   Short answer… It depends on who you ask.

We are NOT certified organic.    We do, however, grow using sustainable and organic practices.  What does this mean?   It means that we do not use inorganic (“chemical”) fertilizers and instead build soil and fertility using compost, manure, cover crops, and natural soil amendments.   It also means that we use natural methods to combat weeds and pests rather than taking the “easy” route of herbicides and pesticides.   This may at times mean more work for us, but we feel it is the responsible decision.
