Our farm has been in the family for more than 60 years, and we believe in sustainable farming practices. Here are the highlights of our policies:
- We do an absolute minimum of spraying. Berry Bounty started as a no-spray operation, but we did not find that to be sustainable.
- We use precise amounts and timing of sprays to reduce pesticide use.
- We exceed minimum pre-harvest intervals to ensure negligible residues at harvest.
- We ourselves eat straight from the bushes and gently wash our blueberries before freezing.
Our farm adheres to the province of BC and Canada's requirements for the application of agricultural chemicals. We want to protect the health and safety of our family, our visitors, and our customers!
