Growing Practices:

“Our goal at White Oak Farm is to offer garden-fresh vegetables to our neighbors, providing nutrient-dense, sustainably-grown produce using various composting and cover-cropping techniques.  Our commitment is based upon our family’s time-honored practice of cultivating and nurturing the soil naturally, without the use of chemical pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers.  The value and conviction of our family is to return more back into the earth than what we take out, leaving the land in better condition than when we first started, building the soil year after year for the future generations to enjoy its sustainable benefits.”
