Here's the description of Organic Agriculture from the USDA Website:
|Sweetie Cherry Tomatoes|
If you read the sidebar on this blog, you'll see that we were selected to participate in the Path To Organic program administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. The program was designed to assist farmers in transitioning to certified organic production.
On Friday, an inspector from Pennsylvania Certified Organic will be coming to Crandall Hill for a site visit. He has reviewed our Organic Systems Plan and will sit down with us to go over details and then tour our farm.
We're excited about taking this step in the process and have been working hard to have everything ready for this visit.
And since we won't be at the Farmers' Market Friday, let me update you on our late-summer garden.
