  • What makes you an environmentally friendly farm?
    Green Hen Farm is committed to using environmentally friendly farming methods in its daily operations. Here are some of the eco-friendly farming practices currently employed by GHF: - Low-till method: This reduces erosion and runoff, improves soil structure, and allows for better water absorption. - On-farm green manure cover crops: This helps to naturally fertilize the soil, adding nutrients and organic matter. - Shared-farm and on-farm compost & biological fertilizers: This uses animal husbandry to provide manure for composting, reducing the need for bagged soil amendments. - Nature’s Good Guys, all-natural, and biorational (pesticide-free) pest control products: These are safe for the environment and help to control pests without the use of harmful chemicals. - Heavy mulching: This helps to prevent weeds while utilizing natural resources such as cardboard, straw, and wood chips. - On-farm propagation and locally sourced supplies: This helps to reduce the carbon footprint of farming by minimizing transportation and packaging. - Reduced reliance on plastic: This includes the use of compostable seed starters and the reuse of plastic containers for many years, reducing waste and promoting sustainability.
