Mohr Fry Sustainability


The Lodi Rules sustainable farming emphasizes the use of nature (like owls) and integrated pest management to protect and grow the crops, while also holding the viewpoint that being economically viable is essential. With this perspective, the business, as well as caring for its employees through protecting safety and well-being, is of equal importance as farming the land sustainability.

Sustainable agriculture is the practice of farming using principles of ecology, the study of relationships between organisms and their environment. It has been defined as an integrated system of plant and animal production practices having a site-specific application that will, over the long term:

  • Satisfy human food and fiber needs
  • Make the most efficient use of non-renewable resources and on-farm resources and integrate, where appropriate, natural biological cycles and controls
  • Sustain the economic viability of farm operations
  • Enhance the quality of life for farmers and society as a whole

Mohr-Fry Ranches follows the Lodi Rules standards of sustainable farming.  Lodi Rules is the first 3rd party non-profit organization that helps promote sustainable farming among the growers using a team of scientists and specialists in the fields of academia and the environment.  The certified Lodi farmers that follow the standards of Lodi Rules produce the following:

  • Higher quality crops out of Lodi
  • Healthier soil, cleaner soil, and improved quality of air in Lodi
  • Safer work environment for Lodi farmers and farm workers

Mohr-Fry Ranches implements the Lodi Rules to protect the environment, workers, community, and crops they produce.  Mohr-Fry believes in the "three E's":  environment, social equity, and economics to help preserve the balance of the environment, people, and business.
