There is no better way of knowing where your food comes from than by going to the very place your food grows. After our first few visits to certified organic farms, we realized there was much we assumed when we saw the word "organic". Expressways can be adjacent to growing soil, major power lines directly overhead of fields and city-fluorinated water used to irrigate crops. Organic certification only requires a distance of 25 feet to exist between conventional crops and "organic" crops.
One of the wonderful benefits of locally grown food is the transparency available in the growing and managing process. By simply visiting the farm and meeting the growers, consumers can judge whether their standards for quality are being met.
Because we are extremely busy farming and filling every off farming second with quality family time, our farm is not open for individual tours or unexpected visitors. However, farm events and tours are scheduled throughout the season.
