Our 4th generation family farm promotes environmentally healthy farming by incorporating sustainable farming methods. We plant nitrogen-fixing cover crops, rotate crops, conserve water (100% drip irrigation), control weeds manually, mulch, and use very limited tillage to preserve topsoil integrity. We believe in responsible stewardship of the land using scientifically sound and ecologically friendly practices. We use the safest formulation of dormant sprays and, if necessary, use the least toxic, most environmentally friendly, non-systemic pest control management options available. Our land is a diverse wildlife habitat and is home to many coyotes, hawks, rabbits, pheasants, and snakes. Wild bee hives help with pollination and owls assist with rodent control.
