Philosophy / Techniques / Sustainable Agriculture
We strongly believe in the principles and practices of Sustainable Agriculture.We grow all our plants on our farm and in our own greenhouses using our custom soil mix composed of Canadian peat moss, organic micronutrients, and vermicompost. We fertilize with Neptune's Harvest fish and seaweed emulsion. Only accepted organic pest controls are used when needed. These may include Soaps, Oils, Neem, Pyrethrum, Rotenone, Bt, and beneficial insects. For us, part of sustainable agriculture means reducing as much off farm input as possible and we are constantly striving to do just that.
We are members of ASAP…the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project… and their certified "Appalachian Grown" program.
