Farming Practices

Here at Shared Bounty Farm, we’re committed to providing our local communities with the highest quality produce and eggs, while using sustainable practices.

Sustainable practices improve the ecological health of the farm, which enhances the quality of life for the farmers, consumers, livestock, environment, and future generations.

We maintain, protect, and nourish our soil with compost, crop rotation, and cover crops.  We use floating row covers, flowering plants, organically-approved biological controls, and beneficial insects to aid in pest control.

Hand and tractor cultivation is used to reduce weed pressure and we promise to never use any type of synthetic chemicals or GMOs.

Harvesting is done by hand and crops are prepared, packed, and refrigerated (if needed) to preserve freshness and flavor.

We encourage subscribers and individuals to visit the farm to gain a full understanding of these practices and fully connect with the land and farmers producing the food you’re placing on your tables.

We feel these principles will result in a more sustainable model for agriculture in the future.
