We started farming in 1991. Craig grew up on a produce farm. His parents owned a large produce farm in King George County. So, as a child and young adult, he learned all the basics of growing vegetables.
After we started our own business, we tried some new techniques of farming. One that has worked very well is growing crops on plastic mulch. This is long strips of plastic that a machine lays in the field over rows of soil. We poke holes in the plastic, and place the plant in it. Irrigation is under the plastic, so little water is lost to evaporation. Also, the need for herbicides is greatly reduced, because there are few weeds in the hole where the plant is.
Being and established grower, C&T Produce, will do our best to offer a combination of variety, quality, freshness, and value. CSAs are not about getting discounted produce, nor are they cooperatives. CSAs are a unique way for people to have a better knowledge of the food they put in their bodies and the process, people, and land it takes to produce it.
