Cedar Crate Farms

Our goal with Cedar Crate Farm is to produce the highest quality produce in the area using sustainable methods. We believe that through the use of cover crops, companion planting and crop rotations there is little need for chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or fungicides of any kind to produce healthy, wholesome produce. Cover crops are amazing tools that they attract beneficial insects, scavenge nutrients from the air and soil to make ready for next seasons produce. They also help reduce or eliminate erosion and help establish healthy, living soil. Companion planting helps synergize the strengths and weaknesses of various produce and crop rotations, and ensure diseases that may be present don't affect future crops. By combining these strategies we seek to minimize or eliminate any need for chemicals and fertilizer and let nature do its work for us.

Food is fundamental, we all need it to survive. It's our belief that food should be high quality, local, and sustainable. It needn't be overly dressed up or processed to taste good. That food should come from a farmer you know, one who will encourage you to visit their farm for a tour!
