CHEMICAL USE PRACTICES FOR FRUIT ACRES FARMS:

  • We use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) which means we only spray for insects according to their life cycle and if that insect has been spotted by scouting orchards every few days.

  • We use pheromones when possible to eliminate or greatly reduce the use of chemicals for certain insects such as Oriental Fruit Moth, Codling Moth and Peach Tree Borer. We participate in studies with Michigan State University for peaches and apples to reduce chemical use as low as possible depending on the weather conditions that particular year.

  • Michigan, unfortunately, has too much natural insect pressure to farm organically on a commercial scale. The western states, with their dry desert weather conditions, are better suited for that possibility. If we could save a lot of money and time by no spraying and still grow a sellable fruit, we definitely would.

  • We do NOT grow genetically altered fruit trees. The new Stellar peach varieties are hand cross-pollinated on a mother tree to get the new varieties the same way breeders have been doing it for hundreds of years. There is no genetic manipulation in a laboratory.
