Farmer’s Pick practices Sustainable Agriculture as a way to grow tasty vegetables without damaging the environment or threatening human health.
We believe in seed freedom and plant diversity, growing only open-pollinated and heirloom plant varieties (non-hybrid, non-GMO).
Heirloom or Heritage seeds and plants have been nurtured, saved, and passed down through the generations, some going back hundreds of years. They are chosen for their:
- exceptional flavor
- exciting colors and unique shapes
- store ability
- adaptability to the growing region
- Biogenetic Diversity, mother earths insurance against extinction
Also, unlike modern day hybrids and transgenic plants which do not reproduce true to type and are patented and corporate owned, open-pollinated plants produce seeds that can be saved and grown year-to-year by anyone for free.
Other principles of Sustainable Agriculture include:
- building a healthy soil
- conserving water
- minimal to no pesticides/herbicides use
- supporting the local community food system
