All Ferron rice is cultivated according to organic, sustainable practices and there is no use of pesticides or herbicides. In accordance with traditional farming practices, fields are routinely left fallow. In non-planting years, corn and medicinal herbs are cultivated to replenish the soil with nutrients. Water from pure and unpolluted underground springs encourages pristine crop growth. The canals running through the rice paddies are full of carp which control pests in a delicate and naturally maintained ecosystem.
