Certified Organic!

We just got our organic certification!  Full Circus Farm is now certified organic by NOFA-NY, LLC (the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York).

You can see our certification certificate here if you are curious.

Being organic means that we use crop rotation, weed the crops by hand or with the horses, use row cover, and share some of our crops with the resident bugs rather than using synthetic pesticides or herbicides.  We use compost, manure, cover crops and fish emulsion for fertility instead of synthetic fertilizers.  Our seeds and plants are organic when possible, are not treated with fungicides, nor are they GMO.  It is great to be certified, but we still think that the best way to know how we farm is come out and see how we farm.  So come to the circus, we welcome visitors!
