Never GMO. Never treated. We select our seeds for taste, vigor, production, and disease resistance.
Greenhouse and transplant production
We start all our transplants on the farm in a high quality, organic potting mix.
To conserve energy, all plants start in our germinator boxes - kind of incubators for young plants. The well-insulated boxes keep us from heating the whole greenhouse to very high temperatures when it is still freezing outside.
After the plants germinate, they move out of the germinator boxes to the planting tables in the greenhouse. Young plants love the light and heat!
When the plants are getting close to ready to move to the field, they first move to he coldframe to harden for their new adventure out in the field.
We plant most our transplants using a waterwheel transplanter. We ride on the back of the machine and set the plants manually.
This carefull approach results in healthy plants in the field, that grow vigorously and are better able to resist environmental stresses.
