Farming Practices

Stone Church Acres Farming Methods

We follow sustainable farm philosophy using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) which involves four steps to controlling insects and diseases.

1. Determine if an insect or disease is serious enough to warrant action.

2. Identify the destructive insects. Most insects are not destructive.

3. Prevent an insect from becoming a problem by rotating crops, selecting pest resistant varieties and planting pest free rootstock. These tactics present no risk to people or the environment.

4. If pest control is still required then we choose the least risky control first: like mating disruption, mechanical control (netting) or trapping. If these practices prove ineffective then we may use highly effective targeted organic sprays such as Dipel. Broadcast spraying of non specific pesticides is only used as a last resort. All pesticides used are tested and approved by Environmental Protection Agency.
