About Double T Farm
who we are
Double T Farm is owned and operated by Tom Kumpf and Theresa Ryan. We reside in the 40/42 area of Johnston County, North Carolina, and the farm property is located just over the Harnett County line.
Tom can be found on the ground (sometimes covered in it!) managing all aspects of planning, planting and harvesting the wide variety of produce we grow. Theresa handles the CSA membership, website, social media and wrangling our 3 growing boys!
how we grow
Our goal is to EXCEED organic standards, not just follow them. Our primary focus is soil quality and health; this leads to a nutritionally superior product. We use:
Compost, compost, compost!
Organic fertilizers like Feathermeal, Greensand, Azomite, Aragonite
Organic pest controls (only when necessary) like Dipel, Spinosad and PygGanic
Cover crops like clover, rye, oats, peas, etc. to BUILD the soil
None. Tom has been growing organically since 1997, long before the national standard was finalized in 2002. He learned from the master, Eliot Coleman, of Four Season Farm in Harborside, ME.
Why not? We feel the customer should make the effort to know their grower, the farm, and the practices they use. Transparency is the ultimate "certification."
