Sustainable Farming

What does it mean to be sustainable? Good question! At Stahlbush, we think it’s important to explain to people what we mean when we use this term to describe our way of farming and producing food. We define sustainable as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (based on “Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development,” United Nations, 1987). We like this definition because it shows the quest for sustainability is a philosophy. Our philosophy of sustainability guides our farming practices and affects the way we use energy and care for soil, water, people and wildlife.

The effort and skill that our employees put forth is instrumental to all of our efforts at Stahlbush. As we work to contribute to the communities in which we farm, we realize the importance of creating a range of employment opportunities. We value contributions to the team while honoring every individual.

We are absolutely committed to safe and fair working conditions, so much so that we have sought and achieved third-party certification of our labor practices. This helps us maintain the highest standards as we strive to continually improve the lives of the people who work at the farm. To learn more please visit The Food Alliance.
