As a 4th generation grower, we know the importance of leaving something for the generations that follow you. We are always staying abreast of new developments regarding food safety, use organic practices, and integrate pest management to reduce our carbon footprint.
New Plantings and crop rotations are integral to the renew-ability of the orchard. There is a major benefit in both when trying to conserve the natural resources and minerals within the soil, water table, native foliage and wildlife.
We utilize many different strategies on our farms.
We have multiple bee hives on our farms to increase the natural bee population, not only of our own orchards as well as the wild flowers and plants around us.
Ponds strategically placed throughout our orchards provide many benefits. While our main use for them is to provide water for irrigation, they also contribute to the biodiversity of the orchard. Fish, insects, & algae create their own additional complete ecosystem.
