Delaney and Alisha Zayac started Ice Cap Organics in 2008. Their passion for farming lies in their love for good food and a desire to live and work in harmony with the natural world. Soil health and nutrition are maintained and pests are kept at bay using various techniques such as crop rotation, companion planting, catch crops, row cover, and the use of organic, natural repellants. To irrigate their 10 acre farm, they pull from the aquifer beneath the Pemberton Meadows and they are pleased to know they are not polluting water sources with chemical run-off.
