Are your strawberries organic?
We only use non GMO plants and seeds in our crops as well as use certified organic fertilizers and fungicides on our strawberry field. While we are not a certified organic farm due to surrounding fields being sprayed with chemicals we do grow everything as if we were. We feed our crops fish, seaweed, minerals, humic acid and molasses while using garlic and neem oil to prevent disease and pest infestation when/if any arise. We work very hard to ensure our plants and trees are happy and healthy as they will yield sweeter and more delicious fruits. We also utilize cover crops to feed the bees and to increase pollination as well as to put nutrients back into the soil.
