  • Why Organic, Sustainable Farming Matters | Portrait of a Farmer

    When it comes to your food, nature always has the last word. Most pro-organic documentaries make their point by taking stabs at the cruelty and other evils involved in the world of industrialized farming. In this short documentary portrait, Jesse Straight, owner of Whiffletree Farm, shows us a different approach. As he gestures to the beautiful landscapes that surround us he explains, "being a farmer is special because this is my office. You spend your day making animals happy...you get to do things that help the things around you thrive". The passion that Jesse exudes in this film will make you question every fast-food burger you've ever eaten, but for all the right reasons.

    Ripening peaches, 21 May, 2015. This tree was purchased from Home Depot at Rosenberg, and planted in early 2013. This tree is growing very fast. and producing a lot of fruits. This year I got about 200 pounds of peaches. Still ripening.. I do not know what to do with it. Well the birds are enjoying them... I wanted to make some peach jam, and tried all tricks to peel off skin in the google search, and the skin does not want to come off. so I made the jam without peeling skin, and the jam looks pink, instead of PEACH color.

One of the reasons we went to LEDs versus less expensive high pressure sodium was we're looking at the future. We know there's less maintenance costs involved in the long term, we also know that these particular lights we can use the same amount of electricity, but we're getting a much high micromole output." Shenandoah Growers is utilizing 612 VYPR lights in their new production facility, 120 VYPR lights in their new propagation area, and 56 VYPR lights in their microgreen production. Those VYPR lights are putting out an average of 160 micromoles, compared to their high pressure sodium lights, which have approximately 75 micromoles. Shenandoah also saw improvement due to the light spectrum of the new VYPR lights. The quality enhanced, the flavonoid content enhanced, the plants were more compact, didn't stretch, and they got a much fresher, more flavorful, and higher-antioxidant content product out to their customers. See more about VYPR grow lights: https://fluence.science/technology/vypr/ Our decision was to utilize the same amount of energy, but increase our intensity of light and our spectrum of light to enhance our production. So we gain higher productivity, which means faster turnovers, which means less energy use per pot. This cuts down on our carbon footprint, it's good for the environment, and good economically.
