The Way We Grow
Our mandate is to provide healthy, nutritious food that meets the demands of an increasing population and a delicate planet.
It starts with a seed – all natural, non-GMO.
Windset Farms® quality starts with premium non-GMO seedlings, nurtured in pristine conditions. Our years of experience ensure consistent product quality and performance from seed to fruit.
Our mandate is to provide reliable, healthy, and nutritious food that meets the demands of an increasing population and a delicate planet.
Standards of Excellence
In 2012, SoCalGas awarded Windset “…the largest energy efficiency incentive the utility has awarded to a customer in its 140 year history for its initiative to conserve energy and resources.”
Our best agricultural management practices for water treatment, reuse and recirculation have been heralded as “industry leading” by regional County agencies.
At Windset Farms®, our greenhouse staff receive extensive food safety training. The food safety policies and procedures we believe in encompass guidelines that are strictly enforced by every person who comes into contact with our fresh produce.
Our grading and packaging operations are audited and certified by an independent third party. All aspects of food safety are assessed, including sanitation, maintenance, employee training, and pest control programs. We’re proud to provide this certification to assure buyers and consumers that our produce and facilities are entirely food safe.
Integrated Pest Management
Controlling Pests - Naturally
Rather than battling bugs with pesticides, we have harnessed the powers of good bugs - natural predators who control the populations of harmful bugs, like aphids and spider-mites. This process is healthier for our crops and our customers.
Storage & Handling
Our temperature and humidity controlled coolers allow us to care for, store and handle the plentiful bounty our greenhouses yield. After harvesting, produce is quickly graded, packaged and immediately chilled to maximize shelf-life.
Recycling & Composting
Working Towards a Better Future
We are committed to sustainability on all levels of our operations, right down to our packaging. All of our plastic packaging is fully recyclable. We also incorporate this way of thinking into how we grow.
Every day, we are working to develop new composting methods and products to ensure a sustainable future for our farm, and your family.
