"To God be the glory! What an honor; I am humbled!!" - Jeff
So in preparation for the radio program, I thought I would blog a bit about how we take care of God's Creation at Bountiful Blessings Farm.
One of the most important things we try to do at the farm is take care of the soil. My grandpa worked very diligently to make sure the soil was healthy, Today, we strive very hard to maintain the soil and contribute to it's health. Adding organic content, keeping the soil fertilized, watching the pH levels and soil tillage are some of our top priorities. These measures help to insure proper stewardship of God's real estate.
Another area of concern is chemical use. At Bountiful Blessings farm we admit we are not organic. However, we do not use harsh chemicals that might endanger wildlife, bees or benificial life. We also take care in putting the well-being of ourselves and customers first by using methods that are safe and effective. We do not spray on a regimen and we incorporate sustainable practices and integrated pest management. When we spray, we start with organic compounds. We don’t use anything stronger than a one-day post harvest interval. We strive to be good stewards of the many gifts and blessings God bestows upon us which include our education and knowledge of good agricultural practices.
We work very hard to insure the safest practices are implemented in our production of delicious, locally grown vegetables.
