OUR GROWING PRACTICES
As a fourth generation family farm, and we take great pride and care in growing responsible fruits and vegetables for our own family + yours! At Westward we practice Integrated Pest Management; also known as IPM. Our IPM philosophy relies on a combination of cultural practices, mechanical and biological controls and careful monitoring of our orchards/fields. Only when a problem exists, and poses an economical threat, do we consider different methods to protect the quality of our crops. When interventions are needed, we always choose remedies that are safe and have minimal impact on the environment.
