This combination provides an ample growing environment for Acerola Cherries.
On our farm, safety is very important. So much so that our standards go above and beyond Good Agricultural Practices (GAP). For example, our farming tools and equipment are cleaned and sanitized before each harvesting. Moreover, we test all irrigation water for pathogens and our water systems are meticulously documented and mapped to prevent the growth of microbes.
