Dusty Lane Farms grows over 30 acres of bell peppers on black plastic, staked and tied by hand. We utilize soil moisture sensors and drip irrigation to optimize irrigation and fertilization efficiency. Peppers are machine seeded in our greenhouse in early March and 420,000 plugs are machine planted by May 10th. Harvested by hand, our crews start in mid July at the green stage with the goal of harvesting 10,000 bushels per acre. Picking continues till mid October and the peppers are sold to fresh market customers and Grasso Foods in Swedesboro NJ for processing.
