At Root Down Farm, we are deeply committed to sustainability in the broadest sense of the term. We believe that by working with the natural rhythms of the earth we can produce healthy, high-quality produce without the risks to human health and the earth entailed by the chemical-intensive agriculture that currently prevails in the United States.
All our produce is certified organic by Baystate Organic Certifiers. We apply only high-quality, non-toxic organically approved fertilizers and pesticides. We have also signed the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Connecticut’s Farmer’s Pledge, which is a commitment to operate our farm in accordance with sound ecological and economic principles. We never use any genetically modified seeds.
