Gaskill Family Farm is a small farm growing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. In a normal year we will start out picking strawberries for the farmers markets followed about mid June with summer red raspberries then blackberries, fall red raspberries, apples and pumpkins. Our growing method is conventional with a great deal of effort put on Integrated Pest Management. We work with nature every where we can, from seeding down hard to plant areas to a vegetation that will attract beneficial insects to growing a combination of clover and grasses between rows of raspberries, not only make it easier for our customers to walk, but to supply the nitrogen the raspberries need to grow. We will commit to working with nature further in 2016 by reintroducing pastured poultry and integrating cover crops back into our system as we had been doing in the mid 1990's.
