Organic Gardening Resources
Here are a few websites that have tons of products and info that don't use traditional pesticides:
We sell only organic products that we personally use on our property
Codex Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is great for internal parasite control. Contains 15 trace minerals that are excellent for soil. DE is a drying agent, and thus reduces odor and moisture in barns and stalls. Fed to animals daily, it keeps fly larvae from developing in manure, noticeably reducing the fly population.
Certified Organic Thorvin Kelp is terrific for use as a soil amendment. It contains many vital minerals and nutrients necessary for plant growth, so can be applied directly to the soil or soaked and applied as a foliar spray. Fabulous in the garden to increase crop yields, drought resistance, frost protection, and stress recovery.
