At Blue Lagoon Organics we are reclaiming land for the next generation. We are growing certified organic fruit, herbs and vegetables. We work hand in hand with nature to protect our water resources, to minimize soil degradation, to decrease pollution, to optimize biological activity within the soil, and to build healthy soil that will produce wholesome food.
We have shaped the farm into raised berms for better drainage and 3 dugouts to collect water. We minimize the use of this water by pumping it through drip irrigation tape.
To replace nutrients in the soil we grow green manure such as alfalfa. This breaks up the hardpan, fixes nitrogen in the soil and is a nutritious mulch. We mulch around the plants with alfalfa hay. This suppresses the weeds and adds organic matter and nitrogen as it decomposes. In the fall it is tilled in to feed the microbial life of the soil.
For additional fertility we raise pastured poultry. We run a chicken tractor over a berm. The chickens eat the weeds, rototill and scratch the soil as they move and fertilize constantly. It is a win-win situation. They give us egg-stra benefits.
