THE JERZY BOYZ STORY CONTINUES...
Jerzy Boyz Farm is an 5 acre pear and apple orchard in
North Central Washington that has been family-owned and operated since
1989. our good fortune allows us to farm in one of the premier tree
fruit growing areas in the world. We are long-term patrons and practitioners
of organic standards---we practice simple, old fashioned, hands-on, building
the soil, low-mechanization, SMALL-scale,
low inputs, natural organic farming.
Jerzy Boyz (we came west from New Jersey in 1979) has
been labeled the #1 organic apple grower by all of our buyers for the last
three years. We believe that extraordinary tasting apples come from
customized composts, mineral applications, and foliar feedings; that crunchy
and crisp apples (apples with great "pressures") come from multiple, carefully
timed, maturity-driven pickings; and that great color comes from multiple
prunings and pickings, as well as lots and lots of loving and special care
for every piece of fruit in our fields. We finish our job by packing
all of our fruit ourselves, by hand, right here on the farm, where we can
watch each and every apple go into the box.
We have been pioneers in the movement away from toxic
agriculture. We are heartened that less chemical spraying is going
on in our valley while our children wait at their bus stops; we are hopeful
that the "new" organic growers will "buy organic" and join the broader
struggle towards a cleaner planet. As we watch corporate agriculture
dilute the meaning of the word "organic", and the domestic apple market
flooding with imported fruit grown under inconsistent standards, we wonder:
will we be able to continue to farm and maintain our high standards on
the production of this wholesome and clean, American-produced, outstandingly
tasty, highly nutritious, fabulously crunchy, maturity picked crop of apples?
up to you folks ... please support the little guy.
