Yes. The weather in West Michigan creates ideal conditions for insects and diseases that damage the trees and fruit to flourish. If these problems are not addressed, it will cause large scale crop loss and poor quality fruit. Organic fruit found in your local stores is also sprayed with pesticides. The difference is those used in organic farming are derived from natural substances rather than synthetic ones. Organic produce is also often shipped long distances which can cause a loss in quality and nutritional value. Our crops are sprayed with carefully tested, approved fungicides and insecticies to ensure we are growing the best quality fruit for you to pick.
