Sugarfoot Organic Farms is a third-generation family micro-farm that is Certified Naturally Grown. We strive to create a farm that is 100% organic, sustainable and humane. We do not use any synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, or harmful chemicals and use only sustainable methods of controlling weeds, pests, and diseases. We use natural inputs and practices to maintain healthy, nutrient-rich soil and compost all of the waste materials that we can while reusing or recycling almost all of the rest. Beneficial plants such as marigold, nasturtium, borage, dill, bee balm, and calendula grow alongside our crops to deter pests and attract beneficial insects. We plant bee attractants and keep our own honeybees to increase pollination of our crops. All of our vegetables, herbs, tree fruits, berries, and nuts are hand-picked and -weeded, and irrigated judiciously with artesian water from our own well. We are dedicated to protecting the genetic diversity of our food sources and almost all of our crops are open-pollinated heirloom varieties. We do not grow or sell any genetically-engineered products, and we do support seed companies that have signed the Safe Seed Pledge. Local, organic produce is not only tastier than trucked-in commodities, but is much higher in vitamins and cancer-fighting antioxidants and you never have to worry about pesticide residues and genetically-engineered organisms.
