Please do not enter the gates (even if open) on days we are not open unless you have a scheduled appointment with us.
15. Is your farm organic?
No, we are not organic. We use fertilizers on our crops along with the occasional use of pesticides to control diseases and insects. We are very conscious of the products we might use and everyone's safety is of upmost importance. We have set damage
thresholds (we can tolerate some damage) and will not make an application until these thresholds are passed.
Our biggest culprits are Anthracnose and Spider Mites (in hot windy dry conditions) on Strawberries, and Stink Bugs on
Peaches and Blackberries. The onions and Potatoes only get fertilizer. Any application we make is done so as a last resort.
I (Farmer Colby) eat the berries right off the plant like they are candy but you might want to wash at least the dirt off before eating.
