Practices
Cairnspring Mills Production Requirements and Guidelines for Grain Growers
1. No pre-harvest desiccation of crops with glyphosate as a harvest aid
2. We collaborate with our grower base to grow regionally well adapted grain varieties that exhibit robust disease resistance minimizing synthetic inputs
3. We prioritize contracts with growers utilizing diverse cover crop mixes and rotations
4. Whenever possible, implement, demonstrate and test regenerative soil health practices.
5. No genetically modified crops
6. No foliar neonic insecticides (the ones that kill bees)
7. When possible, emphasize public grain varieties that allow growers to retain their own seed and re-plant it.
