With all the hype around cleaner eating, buying local, eating organic or as natural as possible, when it comes to buying fresh produce, it can be a daunting task for consumers. So today let’s try and make this process a little easier. I’ll explain how the greenhouses at Red Sun Farms work so you can have a better peace of mind about the produce you serve. At Red Sun Farms, all of our products are grown in a controlled greenhouse environment and naturally free of genetically modified seeds and harsh chemical pesticides.
By controlling the seed selection and the environmental conditions, we reduce the need for pesticides. If a “pest” species is identified within a greenhouse, a natural predator to the “pest” (such as a wasp or ladybug) is released and eliminates the problem. Strategically placed “bait plants” are also utilized within our greenhouses. These “bait plants” attract harmful pests and then the plants are removed entirely to eliminate the insect threat in a natural manner.
Red Sun Farms is innovative with recycling techniques and strives to maintain a “green” greenhouse with 100% of the water and nutrients not consumed by the plant being sterilized, re-conditioned, and recycled back into the greenhouse.
