An Organic Alternative
|Organic Produce is
The Healthy Alternative
|Welcome to the Home Page of the
Henderson Family Farm
Lewis' Hen House & Veggie Farm
Organic food emphasizes the use of renewable resources and the conservation
of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations.
Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no
antibiotics or growth hormones.
Organic food is produced without using conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with
synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering (GMO); or ionizing radiation.
Organic Label: Before a product can be labeled "organic", a Government-approved
certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is
following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards.
Our Organic farming Methods:
We use cover crops, green manures, animal manures and crop rotation
to fertilize our soil and maximize biological activity and maintain
long-term soil health. We use special crop covers that help reduce
the impact of insects and bugs on our produce.
|I would like to Welcome you to our Website
and begin by explaining what organic means and
why it's "The healthy Alternative" for you.
