2019 What is Planted? What are we planning???
15 acres of hulless oats-organic/ seeded to alfalfa after harvest
5 acres of spelt-organic/ seeded to alfalfa after harvest
11 acres alfalfa-organic
16 acres white navy beans-organic
5 acres new seeding alfalfa-organic
41 acres transitional alfalfa(3rd year)
2019- Is the 3rd year we are transitioning 38 additional acres that we are leasing into organic production. This means that this particular field will not be ready to be certified for 3 years. Organic Certification requires 3 full growing seasons pass before certification can be granted. During these 3 years the ground must be treated as though it is certified but the farmer cannot sell the crops as organic.
