Honeyhill Farm has been certified organic through NOFA-NY since 2004. According to Fred, “Honeyhill Farm grows food by what are considered best management practices in the sustainable discipline. We employ appropriate pest management strategies that discourage insects and disease rather than fight them as a result of imprudent practices. Growing organically is an expression of a quality process that includes a holistic approach toward improved soil care and selection of varieties that are appropriate to our climate and our soil. Soil is our most valued resource; rather than depletion our soil is continually improved. Water and air pollution are eliminated and our food tastes better and is both safe and healthful. We employ many types of cover crops to protect and build soil, to retain nutrients left over from previous crops and to smother weeds as part of a larger weed management strategy. We maintain a comprehensive and multi-year rotation plan for all crops and all soil.”
