Practices
Weed Control:
We are a split operation that uses IPM and Organic methods. We control weeds by mulching, crop rotation, mowing, and mechanical and manual cultivation.

Pest Management:
We control pests by frequently scouting. We control these pests by utilizing row covers, crop rotations, and by building healthy soils that grow strong plants that are more resistant to these pests. Our IPM acreage practices a low spray program.

Water Use:
We currently are transitioning 5 acres following USDA organic standards. On this ground we grow a wide variety of intense vegetable crops. We are looking to expand to another 4 acre parcel in the near future. We also have close to 3000 square feet of high tunnel space in which crops are also grown using USDA Organic guidelines. Our other acreage and fruit crop are grown using IPM.
