The farm uses USDA Certified Organic agricultural practices and is committed to providing families with healthy locally grown organic products. USDA organic certification is the only system of food labeling that is subjected to independent review, assuring consumers that toxic, synthetic pesticides used in conventional agriculture are replaced by management practices focused on soil biology, crop diversity, and plant health. This eliminates harmful chemicals in the production and handling of food denoted certified organic – pesticides and herbicides that contaminate water, soil and air, harm farmworkers, and kills bees, butterflies, birds, fish and valuable wildlife.
