We believe that “giving back” isn’t just about philanthropy. To us, it’s about protecting the land in which we grow our berries so that we will continue to have viable farming in our communities for generations to come. It’s about caring for people, both within our company and our communities. Here are several ways that we practice Earth-friendliness….
We pack your berries in 100% recyclable clamshell containers!
Water and Soil Management
Drip irrigation allows us to deliver only the necessary amounts of water and nutrients to our crops. Also, soil health is critical to ensure a healthy plant and a high quality, flavorful crop. So, crop rotation and composting are essential parts of our agricultural practices.
Integrated Pest Management
– a long name for minimized pesticides!
California Giant farmers control pest damage by working with nature, frequently relying on natural pest enemies (predator mites), pest resistant varieties through improved breeding practices, pest monitoring to prevent infestation, cultural practices and other methods to minimize the need for pesticides.
