A comprehensive guide to local organic and sustainably grown food, services and products in Massachusetts and beyond. A project of NOFA/Mass.
At Moraine Farm CSA, our vegetables are grown in an environmentally
sustainable manner: crops grow from greenhouse to harvest without the use of
synthetic fertilizers, pesticide,s or herbicides. The farmers use compost
and organic fertilizers. Green manures and legume cover crops are planted
to fix nitrogen, build soil organic matter, and prevent erosion. Seeds are
organic when available, with inclusion of heirloom and open-pollinated
varieties. We control pests through the use of crop rotations, biological
insecticides, and cultural practices such as the use of row covers. Some
bugs we'll just tolerate. Our practices are guided by the National Organic
Standards and by our own goals for achieving a sustainable system. Moraine
Farm is a property of The Trustees of Reservations.
