We currently tend about 70 varieties of perennial fruit in the form of raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, peaches, plums, cherries, pears and apples. Our apples are set up for Pick-Your-Own harvesting and we sell them at our farmstand here and at several farmer's markets.
The purpose of our farm is to enhance the lives of the participants and our community. The goal is to improve the balance and health of the farm and soils and to grow healthy nutritious food while being financially self-sustaining. The vision is one of a commercially producing fruit farm in a park-like setting.
When it comes for caring for the environment, we will not use synthetic fumigants or Organophosphate Pesticides. Further, we will base our program on reduced risk treatments, not using any restricted chemicals, unless compelling evidence mandates such in explicit cases. We will strive to improve the fertility and health of the land, water and soil each year.
The approach we take on what to grow is that we will use cultivars, seeds and plants which are naturally bred and naturally suited to our environment. Our fruit and veggies will be grown for nutritional value, flavor, aroma, looks and yield.
