Environmental Commitment

Erickson’s is an Eco Apple Project farm.  Every week we document our weather degree days and Integrated Pest Management. We document the beneficial and non – beneficial pests that appear in our traps.

New this year:  bees!  We are working with a local bee keeper to introduce hives to our orchard.  We are adding more plants to develop a bee habitat, and all of us are excited about the potential for a successful bee program.

Here are a few photos of our new beehive:
