Habitat Management Practices
Our farm is low-impact, advanced IPM. We also have two managed prairie spaces - one tall grass (approx 17 acres), one dry/shortgrass (less than one acre). These are managed with timed mowing and burning. We also keep un-managed pollinator blocks throughout the property.
We are Monarch lovers at Door Creek Orchard! We believe in cultivating ecological health and diversity in our farming, and providing safe habitat for Monarchs and other butterflies is part of that.
The Monarch Joint Venture (MJV) is a partnership of federal and state agencies, non-governmental organizations, and academic programs that are working together to support and coordinate efforts to protect the monarch migration across the lower 48 United States.
