how we farm
At reroot organic farm, we strive to produce food in ways that protect natural ecological processes, re-juvenate the soil, and ensure the health and happiness of our animals. Our produce is certified organic under the Canadian Organic Standards by Eco-Cert and we practice crop rotation, cover cropping, and composting. In addition, we do not use any chemical pesticides or fertilizers instead relying on healthy soil to produce healthy plants and using physical barriers, and mechanical cultivation techniques to control pests. Our animals are not certified organic as we currently do not produce enough to justify the organic certification fees. They are however raised outdoors on green pastures, given access to fresh water and shelter, and fed high-quality, GMO-free grains. We do not use antibiotics or growth hormones and don't engage in any mutilation techniques such as tail-docking, beak-trimming or de-horning commonly used on conventional farms.
