C&T Produce

Thanks for your interest in our history. I'm Tracy, half of C&T. We started farming in 1991. Craig grew up on a produce farm. His parents owned a large produce farm in King George County. So, as a child and young adult, he learned all the basics of growing vegetables.

After we started our own business, we tried some new techniques of farming. One that has worked very well is growing crops on plastic mulch. This is long strips of plastic that a machine lays in the field over rows of soil. We poke holes in the plastic, and place the plant in it. Irrigation is under the plastic, so little water is lost to evaporation. Also, the need for herbicides is greatly reduced, because there are few weeds in the hole where the plant is. Different colors of plastic mulch also deter bugs. So, this helps us reduce the amout of pesticide needed. It's a great way to grow most any crop.

We started all of this on a small farm of about 30 acres in Stafford County and one small farm market. A great customer base and a good variety of produce have helped us grow tremendously. We now grow over 400 acres of crops and have many markets throughout the area each week.
