What is Sustainably Grown?
There’s a lot of terms out there when it comes to agricultural farming and produce, we hear words such as organic, seasonal, local and sustainable but what does it all mean? Practicing environmental sustainability in agriculture means taking care of all the natural resources that farms rely on such as soil, water, pollution, pesticide use, and more.
Our sustainable practices on the farm help us to grow the perfect pineapple. To begin, we incorporate organic material into our soil to promote healthy nutrient levels as well as beneficial bacteria and fungi which helps aid in the reduction of our use of chemical pesticides. Other sustainable practices on our farm include maintaining the natural forest, preventing erosion and reducing our overall use of herbicides and pesticides.
Why it Matters
Our practices aren’t just good for our pineapples. Being sustainably-grown helps to benefit our planet, our economy and our community. We strive to leave as little of a carbon footprint as possible while growing the perfect pineapple so that you can enjoy it’s many benefits time and time again. Good for you, good for the environment, and good for our pineapples!
