Our Sustainable Farming Practices
Terhune Orchards is recognized by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection as a sustainable farm. All of our crops are grown using sustainable practices and a science-based system of farming called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Our farm works closely with Rutgers and its IPM scout program to ensure healthy crops in a way that combines environmentally sound, scientific and targeted pest, disease and weed management.
Terhune Orchards is United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) certified organic in our vegetable production, which means our organic crops are evaluated by inspectors to make sure we are following organic guidelines.
As involved members of the community, we believe it’s important to share how we go about providing fresh produce.
