WELCOME TO 2021

While 2020 presented unique challenges to all of us we have taken the positive lessons learned and applied them to better serving our customers this year. Specifically we have built another 2600 sq ft greenhouse dedicated to vegetable plants, and are purchasing and installing another automated planting line to increase our capacity and efficiency. We have made several other modifications as well to achieve the same result. Gone is our winter break and our employees have been working since the first of the year.

Worthy of note this year is that we have sourced the only certified organic bare root strawberry plants in the country and added to our seed grown organic varieties our entire line will be expanded. In early June we will have organic Japanese Sweet Potatoes, just in time for planting. 

We are family owned wholesale growers of over 300 varieties of certified organic herb and vegetable plants. We're located on the North Fork of Long Island and we grow in 44,000 sq ft of greenhouses on a sliver of land between Peconic Bay and Long Island Sound.

We have been Long Island's premier USDA Certified Organic plant grower since 2007 and a family grower of herb and vegetable plants since 1987 supplying garden centers on Long Island and beyond.

With the expansion into organic growing by mega farms, which has clouded the purity of “organic”, more than ever there is a keen desire of individuals to know the source of organic products. 

Families 
want to know what they eat and how it is grown. We find that the best way to do that is to "grow your own organic food." To distinguish ourselves from this concern we are members of “The Real Organic Project “, a grassroots venture by small family organic farms trying to return to the original organic concepts of knowing your grower.

Many ask us what is the difference between a conventional grown plant and a certified organic plant. Organic plants must be grown to strict USDA Organic standards, which include being NON-GMO. To accomplish this we use organic compost and fertilizers, non treated seeds, beneficial insects and only approved sprays for organic production. We record every input and track every plant from beginning to end. And we pay several thousand dollars for our certification which includes an annual inspection of our records and greenhouses. While conventionally grown plants may state they are "naturally grown and NON-GMO" there truly is no comparison to how we grow. Even though we do not advertise our large lavender plants as organic, they are grown the exact same way everything organic is.
