Better Safe Than Sorry
We believe it is better to be safe than sorry, especially when it comes to chemicals on our food. As organic farmer’s we are much happier to be working harsh pesticide, herbicide, fungicide & synthetic fertilizer FREE! We have seen amazing results on our happy little farm over the years! Ben believes our home farm has never been healthier in the past 3 generations his family has farmed this land. This is the direct result of building up our soil over these past 10 years, not depleting it. We adhere to a strict crop rotation and use cover crops and composted organic animal manure which ensures nutrient rich soil and best tasting produce year after year. “It’s just getting better!” Ben often says when standing in the fields. We are also very proud to be Certified Organic by Pro Cert Organic Systems Ltd. You can rest assured that absolutely NO GMO’s are used on our farm whatsoever.
The most common misconception about being certified is the thought that farmers are ‘under the thumb’. Considering we understand and agree with their strict rules and regulations regarding organic growing, we have no compliance issues and are happy to have our farm wide open to inspection at any time. It gives our customers peace of mind that our operation has a third party audit each year where Pro Cert checks where we buy our seeds, what greenhouse potting soil and organic fertilizers are used, maps of our fields, including rotation plans, our organic compost methods, all ingredients for prepared foods etc. It is also refreshing to see actual organic farmers coming out to do the inspections! No one knows an organic farm like an actual organic farmer!
