Biological Control

Parasitic wasps hatching in our greenhouses as part of our integrated pest management plan

A desire to protect our environment and grow healthier plants has led us to drastically reduce the use of pesticides in the production of our crops.  Our current practices focus on the use of Biological Control Agents (BCA’s).  These BCA’s or “good bugs” target and control insects and diseases naturally, allowing us to grow our plants greener and cleaner.  Our biological control strategy consists of releasing parasitic wasps, nematodes, and a variety of beneficial mites to target white flies, thrips and fungus gnat larvae.

We’ve partnered with East Jordan Plastics to recycle and reuse potting material

Commitment to Recycling

We’ve partnered with East Jordan Plastics to recycle the plastic pots and trays used on our farm.  A working greenhouse uses a tremendous amount of plastic in production on a yearly basis.  Previously,  all of this plastic would have ended up in a landfill.  Currently, our plastic waste goes directly back to East Jordan Plastics, where they recycle and reuse the material.  This allows our employees a safer working environment, and provides our customers with a more environmentally friendly product.
