Cascade Organic Farms is certified organic, which means our crops are grown/produced without pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, etc.
In addition, to help prevent and control pests and diseases in our wheat, we have an active “ integrated pest management” or IPM program, which is an environmentally sensitive approach to pest and disease management. In particular, we monitor our crops for pests and identify them accurately. We also have sustainable pest and disease prevention programs in place such as planting rotational crops that naturally repel harmful pests and using natural predators to reduce populations of damaging pests.
Moreover, we use state-of-the-art global positioning satellite guided tractors to decrease fuel consumption and reduce carbon or greenhouse gas emissions.
Furthermore, our modern and efficient irrigation systems deliver the optimum amount of water and crop nutrients which helps to conserve our precious water resources while ensuring efficient and high quality production of organic crops (wheat, beans, corn, etc.) on our farms.
