Preparing your Orchards

Growing peaches in the Northeast organically has presented a challenge to orchardists for years. Peaches, in my opinion, are the perfect example of what it means to farm organically. It is all about preventing a problem rather than reacting to one when it arrives. The trouble with growing peaches is that typically by the time you see an issue, it is already too late to fix it. Here at Fertrell we realize the hardships that growers are having with not just peaches but apples, stone fruits, and grapes as well and we’ve worked hard to figure out a complete program to give the farmer’s a fighting chance to produce these commodities organically.
