"We don't use any synthetically produced chemicals to grow your food. We don't use petroleum based fertilizers. We don't use antibiotics or artificial hormones. We don't use any products that aren't certified organic to use as pesticides. We are aware of the regulations and feel that we live up to them and frequently go well beyond them. And further, here's what we DO do: We use mechanical (not chemical) means to deal with weeds and pests (hoeing, tractor mounted weeders, covering plants to keep off the flea beetles, etc). We use as much biodynamic compost as possible as a fertilizer (used according to certified organic standards). We buy certified organic seeds whenever they are available and not cost-prohibitive.We keep animals on the farm to keep it diverse and recycle nutrients on the farm. We have created a market where we can harvest, pack, and distribute produce within 24 hours keeping the nutrition content high. These are our agronomic bottom-lines and the ones we hope you judge us on. We encourage you ask us as many questions about our growing practices and visit the farm for a tour any time. We want you to know your farm and be confident of our practices and intentions. We hope in this way to build a lasting relationship of trust and mutual dependence.
