We take food safety very seriously. It is important to us to ensure that all produce that leaves our farm is held to the highest standard. That's why we dedicated staff to make sure that food safety is not only present but constantly on the forefronts of our minds. Every year our facilities and records undergo a food safety audit by a third party, WQS (World Quality Services). Moore Family Farms is a certified farm/ranch. We use a certified packinghouse and certified harvest crew, all through Primus GFS/WQS, which meet all FDA standards. All individuals who come in contact with produce at Moore Family Farms are educated on safe food handling practices.
Our farm is continually looking for ways to become more sustainable. For example, we do minimal tillage to our fields when possible. Science shows the less you disturb the soil, the better your soil tends to perform in the long run. By implementing Best Management Plans (BMP's) on our farmland, we are ensuring that the land we have been blessed with will continue to be taken care of for generations to come. We strive to operate with this mindset.
We are proud to grow all of our watermelons. We got our start by growing mini seedless watermelons, although we now produce several varieties of watermelons. Also on the farm you might see alfalfa, wheat, or cotton throughout the year. We are always looking for ways to diversify our crop base by testing new crops in concentrated areas each year. Some of these crops will be something we can add to our arsenal. Click below to see what we are currently offering for online purchase.
