Re: what PCCARD is doing now?

Hello everyone,

I would like to be referred to a source that grows/sells cashew nuts grown organically-- no herbicides, pesticides etc.  I am willing to consider organic in transition if I can know the details of what process is going on there straight from the farming source.  Many thanks! Mylene

P.S. Other needs: naturally raised chickens, hogs, cattle, organic eggs

Re: what PCCARD is doing now?

I am currently on watch on the progress of raising hogs organically.  I will post here whatever I may stumble along the way.

Lets promote organic ways of doing things.!

Re: what PCCARD is doing now?

bolinao cashew are being grown organically without any insecticide whatsoever, in short they are organically grown. In TUPA, one of the upland barangay in Bolinao is a good source of orginacally grown cashew. If you want to visit the place, it is located in the northwest part of Pangasinan. Also barangay LIWA-LIWA, the barrio before you reach the town, there are lots of cashew tree being grown there.
hope this will help..
