Local Roots Farm

Local Roots strictly follows Organic growing practices, although we have opted not to participate in the National Organic certification program. We use only OMRI (list of acceptable products for Organic farms)-approved soil amendments and pest control practices, build soil fertility with cover crops and compost, control weeds with tractor and human powered tools, and accept a certain amount of crop loss due to pests, disease, and bad weather. We also emphasize farmworker quality of life, community-building, new farmer training, and holistic environmental stewardship. There’s more to sustainable farming than an Organic label, and we welcome your questions. If you want to know more about how we farm, please visit our farm blog.
