The Farmers Pledge

As Brenda mentioned on the radio show this afternoon, Boulder Knoll Community Farm is proud to have signed to CT NOFA Farmer’s Pledge.

The Farmer’s Pledge is a commitment to farming, marketing and farm management in accordance with sound ecological and economic principles. It is separate and distinct from “Certified Organic.” There is no inspection process for the Farmer’s Pledge, but the farmers have signed the Pledge to show their commitment to its principles. CT NOFA administers the Farmer’s Pledge program in Connecticut.

The Farmer’s Pledge goes way beyond organic practices and represents our pledge to not only grow produce in a manner that is environmentally sustainable (no fertilizer or pesticides), but also to create a sustainable community by reducing our ecological footprint, to maintain healthy soils, and to connect with our community and support local farms.
