Peek @ the Practice

Compost teas have become a widely accepted agricultural practice in many areas of our country and show great promise in northwestern Pennsylvania.

By helping to rebuild and strengthen the soil food web, clients can expect to see increased plant health and vigor, giving better results for their current growing regimen. Making plants more disease- and pest-resistant, healthy living soils also improve the soil’s structure, revitalizes troubled areas, and improves both drainage and water retention.

Ag-Grow Teas are 100% safe for humans, pets, and the environment. Lawns and plantings will flourish like never before! This new product is kid and pet friendly immediately following applications, and great for play areas and trouble spots in the yard. Our commercial agriculture and turf management clients can expect to unlock the full potential of their existing fertilizer and pest control regimen.

We also have a large selection of fruits and vegetables during the summer and fall growing seasons. We use no hormones, steroids, or chemicals of any kind in either our meats or produce.
