How we grow
We farm using ecological methods that support the health and well-being of our surrounding ecosystem. Our produce is spray-free, meaning we do not use any pesticides, fungicides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. To maintain soil fertility, we practice a five-year crop rotation and apply natural soil amendments such as compost, compost tea, and kelp emulsion.
