This share is not organic. Dad uses current industry standards of integrated pest management and preventative practices to manage the orchards. It is a family business with my brother in law Dwaine managing the orchards and sister Carolyn running many aspects of the business. And you will find Dad (Andrew) at Seaport each week. Beth (Dad's spouse) runs the corn maze and school tours. Not to mention my grandparents are out and about the farm often and still live on the farm.
