WHY WE'RE COMMITTED TO ORGANIC
The Tenets of Organic Agriculture:
No synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or fertilizers
Required soil fertility management practice
Required crop rotations
Buffer land areas to separate conventional and certified organic acreage
Record keeping and traceability of production
On site, third party annual inspection
In the confusing landscape of food marketing and jargon, it’s our intention to provide a simple answer to our customers: We will provide you the freshest, best-tasting, responsibly and organically grown produce possible.
Committing to organics is not an easy path, but we believe it's the best path. Organic certification offers complete transparency to our customers, provides confidence in the integrity of our food, ensures a safer working enviornment and preserves soil quality on our precious Ohio farmland.
Organic farming is a commitment. It’s a commitment to the land and our environment as a whole. It’s a commitment to the health and quality of the products the land produces, and a commitment to the well-being of those who work the land. It’s a statement of respect and responsibility—it’s working with the rhythms and challenges of nature, rather than working against it.
Achieving organic certification is an assurance that a farm’s products have been grown and processed according to a set of uniform standards, which have been verified and analyzed annually—and in-person—by a third party, USDA-accredited organization.
We share the belief that it is our responsibility to return the fertility to the soil that is removed by farming it. We strictly follow the tenets of the National Organic Program with a focus on healthy, mineralized soils. We continually seek, as growers, to improve our farms through proper composting, crop rotation and intensive cover cropping methods.
