Implementing NEW ideas for agriculture sustainability

At East Grove Farms we are working on building a farm that focuses on improving the health of the soil first. Organic growing methods and pesticide free technologies are tested and used on the farm. We hope to work with researchers in the future to discover the most effective methods for producing our crops while maintaining our commitment to sustainable agriculture.
