Our Mission

Native flowers are an excellent addition to a sustainable farm.

Both childhood and adult experiences in farming and gardening, as well as a passion to eat and grow local, fresh foods fueled the Sanners to purchase the Sterling Fruit Farm and make it their own.

From the farm’s inception, it has been our mission to grow great tasting fruit in a sustainable way — caring not only for our customers, but for the earth and soil as well.  Because of this, we do not use any chemicals on any of our fruit or plants.  Instead we use methods such as crop rotation, green manure, natural compost and occasionally homemade environmentally friendly sprays.

Whether it is fruit or yarn, it is our promise to continue learning and implementing additional ways we can care for the land and still provide high quality products to our customers.
