Here's a little post to calm the fears you didn't even have.
We recently purchased a water test for one of our wells--the one that feeds most of the farm, including the washing station and greenhouses. We do a simple test for bacteria, nitrates, lead and the like four times per year, but recently I've been casting a leery eye toward the nearby landfills. So we decided to purchase the most thorough test available to make sure there were no heavy metals, organophosphates or PCBs lurking in our water table. We are totally clear. We're even clear of about four dozen things I didn't even know existed.
I'm sure you weren't really worried anyway, but since we have the test, why not post it on the blog? Click here if you want to read the details: Download Clagett water test 2-09
So next time you're at the farm, feel free to fill your water bottle and enjoy!
