Growing Methods

Here at Pecan Creek Strawberry Farm we strive to grow the most delicious strawberries. We believe that can be acheived using hard work and combined years of farming knowledge passed down to us from generations before.

First and foremost, we are not a certified organic farm, though we implement many organic growing practices.

Fertilizer

We do use liquid plant food, which we pump through our drip line irrigation system that is sent directly to the roots and not topically. We use a 20/20/20, also known as “Triple 20”, based plant food.

Pesticides

We have released 5,000 lady bugs that worked as a natural pesticide that was able to control a small spider mite problem early in the season. However if conditions warrant, we will ONLY use organic liquid pesticides from Grower’s Trust in order to maintain the integrity of the field.

Herbicides

We don’t use any type of herbicides on our fields. The strawberries are grown on raised plastic covered beds which helps control the weed population.
