Our Philosophy as Organic Growers

tomato

At Abers Acres we grow high quality, tasty and nutrient dense organic produce. We work with nature rather than fight against it. We never spray our fields or crops with synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides.
 
Our best defense against disease and pests includes healthy beneficial insects and microbes in our soil. We nurture the soil with sustainable practices such as cover crops, poly cultures and natural fertilizers.
 
We start each crop by hand with organic seeds. Most seeds begin in the greenhouse with organic soil. This ensures the healthiest plants possible. Everything grown on Abers Acres is non-gmo, non genetically engineered (GE) and pesticide free.  
 
We farm in an energy efficient manner with the least amount of waste possible. We support local businesses for our inputs whenever we can. We work with other farms, our community and community supported agriculture (CSA) through the year. This allows more people access to organic produce around our community.
 
Daily we pick fruits and vegetables for farmers’ markets, our stand, CSAs and the community. This freshness allows for the healthiest, most flavorful and nutrient dense produce available. 
 
We stay involved with research about best practices in organic farming. This allows us to stay informed, gain knowledge and help the organic farming community grow
 
If you’re interested in our farming practices please visit us at the farm. See how we grow and share ideas for the best organic farming possible.
 
Together we can make a difference in our community with the healthiest food available. Plus, help our environment for generations to come. 
 
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions please contact us. 
 
-John, Susan and Adam Abers
