Two EE’s is a 25 acre family operated organic vegetable farm located on the border of Surrey and Langley in Beautiful British Columbia.
How Two EE’s grows their local organic produce:
Two EE’s uses environmentally friendly alternatives to the synthetic herbicides, fumigants, fertilizers, and highly toxic insecticides used in conventional agriculture.
They employ a variety of methods to grow organic food, including crop rotation, cover cropping, application of compost, and mulching. They also use certain processed fertilizers such as alfalfa meal. These organic methods help control erosion, promote biodiversity, and enhance the health of the soil.
Pest control targets animal pests (including insects), fungi, weeds and disease. Organic pest control involves the cumulative effect of many techniques, including, allowing for an acceptable level of pest damage, encouraging or even introducing beneficial organisms, careful crop selection and crop rotation, and mechanical controls such as row covers and traps. These organic techniques generally provide benefits in addition to pest control — soil protection and improvement, fertilization, pollination, water conservation, season extension, etc — and these benefits are complementary in overall effect on farm health. Effective organic pest control requires a thorough understanding of pest life cycles and interactions. Weeds are controlled by hand, and through the use of cover crops and mulches.
