Community Organics is a small farm located near Greenwood, Delaware. We grow a wide variety of vegetables, most of which are heirloom and open-pollinated varieties. We are committed to organic principles and are Certified Naturally Grown, a national program in which member farmers hold each other accountable for the integrity of their growing practices. Our soil quality is a key focus for us. We have paid attention not only to fertility needs, but also to trace elements and minerals. Community Organics' basic operating principle is that human health is dependent on the balance and health of the soil that our food comes from. We are happy to share the specifics of our growing practices, so let us know if you have any questions.
We never use synthetic chemical pesticides or fungicides. Instead, we encourage beneficial insects and sometimes use non-toxic deterrents or repellents.
We never use synthetic chemical herbicides. Instead, we utilize mechanical cultivation, hand weeding, mulches, and cover crops to control weeds.
We never use synthetic chemical fertilizers. Instead, we make our own compost and use other natural fertilizers such as fish, seaweed, manures, and mined minerals.
We never use chemically treated seeds and we grow our own vegetable transplants.
We never use genetically engineered seeds or feeds.
At the core of our reasons for farming is the commitment to grow the healthiest food possible and get it from field to table quickly in order to maximize taste and nutrition.
