Perry Hill Farm grows plants very
differently. Our seedlings are grown in our
own compost, made from our organically fed livestock's manure instead
of a sterile
potting mix. Our soil is
not tilled, which is better for the environment. Our produce is grown
permanent raised beds and is co-planted with mutually beneficial
plants. We have a garden insectary, which is small garden plot of
plants designed to attract beneficial insects. Those beneficial
insects devour many common garden pests. This natural approach,
combined with co-planting is Perry Hill Farm's safe alternative to pesticides.
We have signed the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New
York (NOFANY) Farmer's Pledge.
