Protecting the Air, Land and Water
Sustainability is key to – not only continued farming in Ontario – but the quality of life we all enjoy. At Finch Haven Orchards, our goal is to ensure a sustainable property for generations to come. With this as our goal, we’ve gone out of our way to protect the air, land and water on our farm.
20% of our farm is designated for natural habitat. A wild vegetation border is kept along fence lines and streams to provide wildlife corridors, and we’ve created and/or rehabilitated wetlands. In conjunction with the best Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices, we’ve implemented an environmentally friendly low spray program (virtually organic): more selective, less persistent, less harmful to non-target species, and fewer sprays of any kind.
