Profeta Farms

How We Farm
 
Here at Profeta Farms, we take great pride in our growing operation. Not only are we organic, but we also apply regenerative farming practices to the soil that our food comes from. This means year after year we ensure that our soil, the foundation for the nutritionally dense food that grows within it, is replenished with nutrients. We achieve this by planting cover crops, composting, and fertilization programs. It is important to remember that the quality of the food you eat starts in the soil that it is grown in.

 

When harvesting our crops, we also hand pick each and every one. We truly believe the connection between the food, the farmer, and the customer is a special relationship that should not be abridged by detrimental shortcuts.

While organic certification is a great baseline standard, we choose to go above and beyond the required organic farming practices to produce food that’s not only high quality, but also nutrient dense and delicious. These are the founding principles upon which we’ve built Profeta Farms:

• Sustainability & Regeneration: We consistently work our land to make sure it’s biologically diverse and suitable for organic farming. We will continue to regenerate old farm land across New Jersey and Pennsylvania as part of our mission.
• Achieving Higher Standards: We believe it’s imperative for us to exceed current USDA organic certification rules and we operate our farm with 100% transparency.
• Animal Welfare: We have higher quality animal raising standards and practices – all the animals on our farm live outside, cage free and are managed on a pasture-based system.
• Environmental Preservation: We grow our food with only certified organic soil amendments, fertilizers, and pest control methods which do not harm the environment.
• Nutritious Food with Great Taste: We believe that the healthy food we eat should not just be good for you but should also be tasty and delicious!

The crops we grow and animals we raise are crucial to our success. We do not use any synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, GMO seeds, or GMO feeds. We also do not use farming practices that degrade soil, water, or other natural resources.
