Our main focus is getting you on your journey to grow fruit organically.
Apple, pear, plum, cherry and many other fruits that are grown as a perennial crop in Wisconsin are just a few examples of what you can grow in your yard, without harmful chemicals.
Most of you have family to care for, so do we. That makes it a top priority for us to have living, healthy soils into which we plant as many perennial crops as we can. Not just fruit trees but also berry bushes and supporting companion plants. These plants server a variety of uses including, but not limited to:
- Culinary: Leaf, stem and root vegetables to eat.
Examples: Asparagus, Artichoke, Rhubarb.
- Insectory: Attracting beneficial insects
- Nitrogen fixing: Plants to fix nitrogen with help from a bacterial called Rhizobium and Mycorrhizal association.
Whether we are organic, holistic, natural or permaculturally driven, we know that chemical applications are not necessary. Short term benefits do not outweigh long term results. The saying “Putting poison on food is not such a good idea”, is spot on.
