Organics Family Farm
After growing fruit conventionally for decades, the Passafiume family decided to make the transition to organic back in 2001. The decision to make this change was two fold. In response to climate change and the rapid depletion of resources, they felt they needed to take a more sustainable approach to agriculture. Their goal is to farm their land in a manner that provides the greatest health benefits with the least negative impact on the environment. Open seasonally with crops late Spring to Fall
