Growing Practices: we use sustainable farming strategies. We have a few simple rules: our kids must be able to eat straight out of the garden. We do not use anything that might hurt our bees. We do not use any synthetic pesticides, fungicides, or fertilizers. We use cover cropping, composting, and our mushroom substrate as fertilizer. We grow all our row crops from seed in our green house or in the field, and practice crop rotation.
