All vegetables produce on Orange Circle Farm are certified organic by the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, Markets and Food. In addition to those requirements, we refrain from using any types of herbicides, fungicides or pesticides, even OMRI listed products. Our methods of pest and disease prevention include crop rotation, maintaining a small scale, rotations with animals and more.
Through many sustainable practices, we are constantly aiming to minimize our impact on the planet. Some of our current practices include rainwater collection, drip irrigation, solar powered fencing and using local leaves collected by our CSA members to help fertilize the garden. Piece by piece, we're always adding to this list with intentions of becoming less reliant on fossil fuels, nutrients imported from great distances, single-use materials and constant tillage of our soil.
If you ever have questions about what goes (or doesn't go) into growing your vegetables, please don't hesitate to ask your farmer!
