- We use less than half the water a commercial grower will use (even less if we're on drip irrigation and have mulched).
- We slash our carbon footprint as there's zero fuel involved other than you coming either to Rodgers Ranch for the farmers' market to select your favorites.
- The food is tastier and more nutritious because we pick it at peak maturity and eat it soon thereafter.
- What we grow is much safer because we know what has gone into growing the plants. (And you KNOW the plants are coming from a great home - Kelley and I use only open pollinated seeds, make our own transplanting medium, use compost and worm castings as Best.Fertilizer.EVER, and grow the seedlings so they're accustomed to our climate.)
