We often are asked if we spray or use pesticides. Yes we do, but out of necessity, with responsible and strategic purpose. Godfrey’s Farm provides conventionally grown produce, using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices to deter pests and limit pesticide use.
IPM, as defined by the EPA, is the effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management. Our farm uses professional scouts to help implement our program which uses knowledge of pest life cycles and their natural deterrents to cause the least possible hazard to the environment.
IPM is used in combination with effective and targeted pesticide use to reduce loss of crop and maintain top quality produce.
