Loriridge Farm consists of 28 acres with about five acres dedicated to tree fruit and four acres planted in vegetables and cut-flowers. We use hoop houses for flower and vegetable production, and to start the approximately 20,000 transplants we use each year. Our other crops are alfalfa, red clover and rye, all of which are planted in rotation with the vegetables and flowers. This rotation allows us to naturally enrich our soil, increase organic matter, and aids in the control of weeds.

While we are not certified organic, we follow many sustainable farming practices such as crop rotation, plow down of green manure crops, composting, and integrated pest management.

We scout our fields and orchards daily, and apply the most environmentally and consumer safe controls only when needed.

We use organic approved controls whenever we can, and many of our crops are not sprayed at all.
