We believe that high quality produce begins when the seed is planted. Growing healthy transplants that are the right variety and size is essential for our operation.
We prepare each seedling for transplant into our high tunnels or outdoor production areas by fertilizing with trace minerals and organic microbes. The size and health of each plant is essential to the success of producing a high quality product.
We have a small starter greenhouse that houses our seedlings. Here seedlings get the warmth needed for a rich start. With this starter house we can easily manage a schedule to cultivate seeds and transplant them at the perfect growth stage.
Although we are not a certified organic farm, we utilize many organic practices to control weeds and disease, including plasticulture.
In addition to our high tunnels, our outdoor field production is another highlight to our farm. Maintaining weeds with black plastic and keeping everything mowed throughout the summer is important to prevent insect damage and the development of weed seed.
Throughout our high tunnel production, black plastic, clean straw, and monitoring soil health are vital to successful production. We sample and analyze the soil and nutrient levels each season to help provide our plants the best opportunity to produce at their highest potential.
Providing a safe, wholesome product for our customers has always been a top priority at our farm. We take our customers safety seriously and will always do our very best to assure our customers that what they purchase from our farm has been handled with safety in mind. We have spent years converting an old building on our farm into our workshop and cooler. During the summer months, this is a very busy place.
Vegetables are sorted when they are picked and sorted again when they enter the workshop for cleaning and packaging.
We rinse all vegetables that are picked in our workshop and we package all of our produce in new boxes or bags prior to the delivery to our wholesale customers. We also personally deliver each order to the grocery stores and restaurants that we work with. We feel that this personal interaction is very important to insure that we are providing the best quality product and service possible.
"No Spray" signs are posted at our farm to help notify everyone that we are a farm listed on the Iowa Sensitive Crop List Directory. This directory provides pesticide applicators the location of crops that are sensitive to chemical drift and is intended to prevent any harm or damage to the crops grown on our farm. We do our very best to work cooperatively with all farmers in our area. Although we are not a certified organic farm, we use many organic practices. We do our best to refrain from using chemicals, but if there was a problem that could not be handled organically that was threatening the growth and production of our crop, we are not opposed to saving our crop by using an approved non organic product.
