Sunny Slope Greenhouses

Sunny Slope tomatoes are pesticide-free. Dave and Jim started using biological controls and innovative cultural practices in 1980, which was quite avant-garde in the U.S. greenhouse industry at that time. Some organically approved pesticides were also used in the early 1980s. Since 1985 no pesticides – organic or otherwise – have been used to grow Sunny Slope tomatoes. Sunny Slope has served as a model for many greenhouse vegetable producers in North Carolina to be pesticide-free.

Jim and Dave believe that the things that set Sunny Slope tomatoes apart from most other tomatoes are their great taste and exceptional shelf life, which exceeds 14 days in the bag or on the counter. Sunny Slope tomatoes have never been and should never be refrigerated. The great taste comes from proper nutrition and handling and the fact that they are soil-grown in the rich mineral soils of Chatham County.

Growing Practices: 

Bison are raised strictly on forage grown on the farm. No growth hormones or routine antibiotics are used. Antibiotics are only used when attempting to save an animal's life or eyesight.
