Farming is more than just a lifestyle.
At Lindcove Ranch our goal is to farm responsibly. We want to promote healthy soils and trees that will provide the economic benefits necessary to make it possible to farm here for many more generations.
No, we aren’t organic. But we are mostly pesticide free.
As early adapters of the University of California’s science-based Integrated Pest Management (IPM) process, we manage destructive pests through biological control – the use of such natural predators as ladybugs and lacewings to attack the harmful pests.
It is a balancing act.
But when we do need to treat, we choose the softest materials that do the most selective job to preserve the environment and as many natural enemies and pollinators as possible.
