Sustainable Farming | Krause Berry Farms
Crop care is vitally important to us.
We are grateful to have field scouts like Emily below, who act as a second set of eyes for us in the fields. They understand Mother Nature and monitor the crops weekly for bugs - both good & bad, and any sign of disease.
This helps us respond quickly if there is a potential problem.
How's it Growing?
Bountiful harvests since 1974 are nature's endorsement of the Krause family's care for the land, the soil, and crops.
We believe we grow the best agricultural crops in an environmentally sustainable way.
We have worked very hard over the years to keep our soils healthy and productive.
Krause Berry farms & Estate Winery has always sought a sustainable style of agriculture.
The family motto has been and is "Be good to the land and the Land will be good to you".
Our farm has thrived because Alf Krause has adopted new agricultural technologies as they become available. Years ago we adopted an integrated pest management system of farming. Our farm is a member of several grower organizations that sponsor and financially support basic disease resistance. This includes a focus on the nutritional and flavour components.
We then make an informed decision on how to proceed based on all of the collected information. Our farm adheres to the province of British Columbia and Canada's requirements for the application of agricultural chemicals.
