Our Little Barnyard has two missions when it comes to growing edible plants. Our first priority is to grow plants listed on the Dirty Dozen list in order to have healthier food. Foods on the Dirty Dozen list are the top twelve foods containing the highest levels of pesticides and herbicides. We do not use pesticides or herbicides on the farm.
Our second priority is to grow superfoods. A superfood is an exceptionally good food naturally high in vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants or omega-3 fatty acids. These foods are good for improving one's health and for boosting the immune system.
