At Crisp Country Acres we use sustainable farming practices. We focus on keeping the plants healthy and building the soil nutrition. By doing this, it will naturally help the plants repel pests and diseases. Healthy plants produce higher quality, tastier and more nutritious fruit. We do, occasionally, need to use intervention in the event that a bad infestation or disease is threatening the entire crop. We do our best to keep this to a minimum. We use natural, organic based fertilizers when possible. We practice crop rotation and use cover crops to help build organic matter in the soil.
Water conservation is also very important to us. We use vegetable washers that recycle the water and use significantly less water than a typical vegetable washer. We use drip irrigation whenever possible. Drip irrigation only puts water in the plants root zone. By using drip we do not waste water by irrigating the paths and driveways. Mulch is also used around the plants to hold down weeds and keep the water from evaporating in the hot sun.
We are currently working on becoming GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) certified. We do our very best to provide a healthy, nutritious and quality product for you and your family to enjoy!
