Sustainable Farming

We have added this page because we get a lot of people asking about our pesticide use and if we are organic.  We want to be as transparent as possible on this issue and help educate you on what we do and do not do.  At the bottom of this page will be a list of what we did in the past years and planned for the current.  Do not hesitate to ask us if you have any concerns or questions. 

Our Approach


Our approach is to avoid the use of the "cide" brothers; herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, or other typical farming sprays. If required we would first use an organic-based application.  To be 100% transparent below are the details of past practices and plans for this year.  We will update this page if anything changes. 


 Our recurring practice is to utilize mulch to hold down the weeds and help amend the soil.  We also till along the edge of the beds to avoid grass growing up the edges and hand weed. Many berry farms use herbicides to control their weed and grass population, we do not.  

For Blueberries in March, we use a pellet fertilizer, which is not organic.  We use ammonium sulfate, sulfur, and potash to provide the NPK for the berries. For Blackberries and Elderberries, we use a 13-13-13 pellet fertilizer. All three berries also receive a soluble fertilizer through the drip irrigation system from May to June. 

Strawberries - These are grown on a tabletop and require constant feeding of water & fertilizer which is applied through the drip irrigation system
