Neptune's Harvest Fish & Seaweed Fertilizer Gallon (4/Cs) is the starter in our soil biology and the foundation of our natural sprays. This is the ONLY hydrolysate we recommend and sell at the farm. We use a full tote of it each season. It feeds the soil and the plants, creating a healthier and more active foundation for all of our trees, shrubs and plants. Whether you're planting annuals or perennials, this item is invaluable. We sell it at the farm, if you're local, or buy it directly from Neptune's Harvest at this link.

Garlic Barrier 2002 AG+ Liquid Spray, 1 Gallon is our Go-To pest deterrent. Whether we're dealing with ticks, curculio, or deer, Garlic Barrier (a concentrated Garlic Extract) is our favorite product. We also utilize it for fungal and bacterial treatment. Problems like Peach Leaf Curt, Black Knot, and Bacterial Canker are treated naturally and effectively with this product. And, for 30 minutes after spraying, your yard will smell like an Italian restaurant. In my book, that's a huge plus! We used to carry this product in our store until Garlic Research Labs starting selling it on Amazon. The price, with shipping, for the gallon on Amazon is the same price we bought it for wholesale.

LAWN & GARDEN PRODUCTS P MONTEREY B.T. CONCENTRATE 32 OUNCE is a safe product to use in the home orchard for control of caterpillars. BT is a biological control that helps with outbreaks while you are working on the health of your orchard. Quite often, in the northeast, we hear from customers who are losing trees, especially young trees, to tent caterpillars. This is the product we advise them to use. We have not had an issue with caterpillars in our trees for a while. We have recruited ants to help defend our trees from them; however, this does take some time to do. In the meanwhile, this product can help keep your trees from being defoliated.

Felco Pruners are the ONLY pruner we use in our orchard! The shape of the cutters makes working in tight spaces easy. The ergonomic handle allows us to work all day with fatigue. The excellent quality has provided years of use without replacement. There are options available for lefties (this makes Brian happy!) as well as small hands (which makes Jill happy!) There are also easily changeable parts and a Lifelong Warranty.
