28 Oct Cherrylake awarded “Agricultural Environmental Leadership” Award
In recognition of our responsible agricultural practices, Cherrylake has been awarded the Florida Department of Agriculture’s “Agricultural Environmental Leadership” Award.
Adam H. Putnam, Florida Commissioner of Agriculture, personally selected Cherrylake for our commitment to sustainable agriculture, which affects every aspect of our farm’s operation, as seen through our innovations in water usage, pest control, and fertilizer management.
Austin Spivey, our Production Manager, summarized our passion for sustainability, “To me, good stewardship is the care and protection of our natural resources. And here at Cherrylake we take that very seriously. Every process that we engage, the heavy component that we weigh in is how is this going to affect the environment? What we’re doing here is much bigger than just the now; this is about generations to come. And that’s why we choose to engage in best management practices that aren’t always the easiest thing to do; but they’re the right thing to do”.
