Frequently Asked Questions

Is your farm organic?

The label “organic” is controlled by the USDA, and in order to use it, a farmer must have been through a certification process that costs thousands of dollars and takes three years to qualify for. We will not be pursuing that certification.

However, we too are concerned about the ways conventional agriculture uses chemicals, artificial fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides, which is why we use natural and organic farming methods for pest control and fertilization.

Do you use GMO seeds?

No. We do not purchase or use genetically modified (GMO) seed.

More coming soon. In the meantime, if you have a question, email our director Hugh at hugh@jacksoncityfarm.org
