  • Concerning the Environment

Our farm is concerned with the environment and promoting responsible health practices.

We follow a program called Integrated Pest Management(IPM), which is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. Though we are not classified as organic, it is important to note that many organically produced products also have certain pesticide protocol that they apply for pest prevention. We are committed to maintaining the highest quality products and providing healthy produce for families in the community.

  • What if it rains?

The farm remains open during periods of rain. The safety of guests and staff is our primary concern - the threat of lightening in the area will suspend operations.

Our strawberry patch is lined with straw and seldom "muddy". Excessive rain may cause a few wet areas, so it is recommended you wear older foot wear or boots.
