Farming Practices

At Field Stone Farm we practice the following:
* The use of compost and compost teas as fertilizers that are produced on our farm or farms that we know.
* The use of passive forms of pest control such as floating row covers and beneficial insects.
* The use of mulch and hand weeding to control weeds.
* The use of cover crops to control weeds and improve fertility.
* All livestock raised with access to sunshine and pasture without the use of artificial growth hormones or antibiotics.
*All livestock feed is certified organic.
