At Rice Family Harvest we take seriously our responsibility to provide clean safe fruits and vegetables, while being a careful protector of the environment. Our family enjoys this produce too, so we are constantly researching and working with the Ohio State Extension and Conservation offices to use the best methods of integrated pest management without pesticides. Environmentally and health-friendly products that target pests at specific stages of development and pheromones that confuse insect mating cycles are examples of ways we can grow “gently.” We consistently follow organic practices and treat with items approved for organic growers.
