Greenfield Farms – Fredricksburg, OH
For many years, our friends at Greenfield Farms have been growing premium organic produce for our stores and over the years their products have gained quite a following.
The farmers at Greenfield Farms believe that growing healthy food begins with healthy soil and therefore use only natural fertilizers and organic matter, along with a watchful eye, to keep the soil healthy and thriving. Pests and weeds are controlled with annual cover crops and tillage rather than with the use of harmful chemicals, the way that it’s been done for centuries within these close-knit families.
These dedicated farmers truly seek to work in harmony with nature by providing habitats for insects and birds that help control harmful plant pathogens and bugs in the fields. Honey bees pollinate the flowers as they blossom on the young plants in their fields.
This careful attention to the soil and environment while working with nature ensures tasty wholesome food with real nutritional value for your family.
From Greenfield farms you can expect the highest quality organic produce, grown close to home and grown to be the most nutritious and healthful as possible.
