Leaving the planet better than we found it.
Wholesum™ believes the healthiest, most flavorful produce is also grown responsibly. That’s why we meet present needs without compromising future generations’ abilities to meet theirs.
We approach organic farming with a deep love for the earth, understanding of the local ecosystem and ingenuity for growing. Our sustainable practices include:
We use a wide variety of mechanical and biological measures to control pests — green alternatives to conventional chemical methods. These include sticky traps in our greenhouses and parasitic wasps and spiders.
We compost for ourselves on each farm to ensure what goes into our compost is organic, and we continually aerate our compost to promote aerobic microorganisms, which are most beneficial to the plants and safest for the soil. Adding this organic matter to the soil also helps with moisture retention.
We foster biodiversity on our farms by actively planting native species and removing invasive ones, like buffelgrass. We pass down this practice to future generations by involving children from our community.
We strive to ensure the highest amount of post-consumer waste in all cardboard and look for 80 percent or better recycled plastic where plastic packaging is necessary.
Leaders of conservation in agriculture.
As successful growers, we know strength in agriculture comes from working with other socially conscious family farms. From small homesteads to large estates, our organic farmer partners share our commitment to growing (and living) responsibly, with an unwavering respect for nature. United by our passions under the Wholesum name, we sustainably produce the berry best organic strawberries and blueberries year-round.
