Environmental Stewardship

 

Barnes Farming is an environmentally-friendly operation and preserving the natural beauty of our crop land throughout Eastern North Carolina is a main priority. In addition to having certified nutrient management programs for our farming operations, our family-owned corporation has also developed its own forestry and wildlife programs. 

 

As part of our rotation practices, we plant a variety of legumes in order to reduce overall nitrogen requirements. In addition, we annually test for soil micro-nutrient analysis and nematodes with NC State University; which helps us to use the most advanced nutrient management program available by prescription applications.

 

Barnes Farming Corporation GlobalGAP and Organic certifications also attest to the environmental stewardship programs of our company.
