Organic Farming

What is Organic Farming?

 Organic farming refers to the method of growing plants that most  closely resembles nature — that is, without the use of synthetic chemicals, pesticides or fertilizers that can be harmful to the soil, people, pets, and the planet.  Organic farming uses organic materials to support healthy, sustainable gardens. What’s more, gardening/farming organically typically means growing the right plants for your particular micro-climate, location and site. 

Blueberries

We are excited that our new blueberry plants will be going in this spring.  We have chosen a nice variety of non-GMO, heirloom, heavy-bearing variety to withstand the cold winters and that will give us fruit from the early through late growing season.  

Blueberry Facts:

  • A deciduous shrub producing berries that are sweet and juicy, and are among the highest natural antioxidant fruits.
  • These tiny, round blue-purple berries have long been attributed to the longevity and wellness of indigenous people living around subarctic regions in the Northern hemisphere. 
  • Very low in calories.
  • Help rid off harmful oxygen-derived free radicals from the human body, and thereby, protect it against cancers, aging, degenerative diseases, and infections. 
  • Excellent in pies, muffins, juice, jellies, jams, tarts, and ice creams... not to mention eating fresh-picked.

Stay tuned...

Visit this page regularly if you're interested in a bushel or two as we're sure these little gems will go quickly.  We will post an announcement as soon as they come available.

                              

Strawberrries

Nutrition

Research confirms that strawberries are an important part of a healthy diet, which may help improve heart health, lower the risk of developing some cancers and lower blood pressure.  The heart-healthy and anti-cancer power of organic strawberries comes from their phytonutrient content, while the potassium in strawberries  helps maintain normal blood pressure. Research also shows that  individuals who eat strawberries on a regular basis have higher blood  levels of folate, vitamin C and phytonutrients, and a higher intake of fiber than those who don’t eat strawberries.
