We think you'll love the freshness, aroma and flavor of our Certified Organic Strawberries. If you've been searching for real strawberries that are grown from the earth, here they are!
Our strawberries are naturally grown in the garden and
are NOT sprayed or treated with anything.
Bottle Hollow Farm strawberries are garden-grown; no hydroponics!
Can we talk a little bit about commercial strawberry production? These days, many growers use hydroponic systems where the plants are grown in artificial media without soil. This requires the plants to be fed nutrients through an irrigation system. Commonly, the plants are held in plastic trays or piping, or in "grow bags". These indoor systems can require large amounts of energy for climate control and artificial lighting; plus the energy and materials required to build large-scale greenhouses.
Many of the mass-market strawberries in the stores, including organic strawberries, are grown by
hydroponics. As a Real Organic Project
certified farm, we do not use any
hydroponics at Bottle Hollow Farm.
All our strawberries are garden grown... in the ground, outside with the bees, fresh air and sunshine. This more natural style of strawberry production suits our farming philosophy. Plus, we think berries grown in rich soil can be more nutritious and much more flavorful.
We hope you dig it.
