Riverhaven Farm is an ecological farm situated along the Nooksack River near Lynden, WA. In our view, an ecological farm attempts to utilize or mimic nature through a diverse biology and focus on building rich, healthy soils. You may have heard the sayings, "You are what you eat," and, "You are what your animals eat". What your animals eat comes from the soil as does much of the fruit and vegetables we eat. It is our goal to produce the healthiest food possible. We do not use any pesticides or commercial fertilizers as they are known to destroy the complex universe of soil organisms and bind nutrients, making them unavailable to plants. On-farm composting and intensively managed grazing are some of the ways we attempt to mimic natural processes.
