Our orchard is Iowa's first and central Iowa's only certified organic apple orchard.  We have managed our orchard organically since the first trees were planted in 1992.  We began certifying the orchard in 2000.  Organic requirements are set in federal regulations.  Insect pests are monitored with traps and organic practices are implemented to prevent these insects from destroying the apples.  Consequently, we do use organic approved spray products to protect the apples from insects and diseases. 
We have cooperated with
Iowa State University in several organic apple research projects.  Projects have included organic management of codling moth, organic management of sooty blotch and fly speck and food safety aspects of organic apple production and handling.  We strive to produce and offer the highest quality apples available anywhere.
