Stahlbush sees innovation as a key tool to improve soil, energy use, water, biodiversity and food safety. We are constantly looking for innovative ways to use technology and will continue incorporating creative, sustainable ideas into our farming practices. For example, in 2010, Stahlbush will introduce the first biodegradable bag in frozen fruits and vegetables. And, using GPS-guided tractors, we are able to cultivate with ever-increasing accuracy, reducing synthetic farm inputs and diesel fuel usage. We can also perform some of our farming activities 24 hours a day, making better use of our equipment and running fewer total tractors.
From building the first-of-its-kind biogas plant in North America to creating the first-of-its-kind biodegradable bag in frozen fruits and vegetables, Stahlbush Island Farms is a leader in putting innovation in the service of sustainability.
