As farmers, we know how important it is to protect our environment. Here are some of the initiatives we have undertaken to keep our farming green.
- Drip Irrigation for more efficient water usage
- Biodegradable field plastic and bags
- Manual Labour practices ex) hand weeding, tilling, picking by hand
- Use of GPS (Global Positioning Systems)
- Efficient drainage throughout our fields
- row covers
The McGregor family is proud to be involved in the local community. We feel that by giving back we say "thank you" for all of the business local patrons have given us.
We think taking part is essential to a healthy and strong community. Providing donations to local events or charities is how we feel that we can help to achieve this goal.
