Fresh Fork Market suppliers are largely small organic growers. The average tillable acreage of our vegetable farms is around 1 acre. The largest farm we work with grows about 30 acres of “specialty crops.” These producers want to grow organically because it make sense for the health of their farm and for their income statement! Chemicals, fertilizer, etc all cost money! If you’ve ever met a farmer, you’ll know that most of them are operating on very tight margins, and anything they can do to save on production costs is a boon to them. Composting makes fantastic fertilizer, anyhow and is cheap and easy to produce.
