We use no pesticides / herbicides / fungicides / sprays on our farm, not even pest control products approved for Certified Organic growers. We do hand-pick bugs off of plants and drop the bugs into soapy water with Planet dish washing soap; but we try to avoid spilling the soapy water on the plants themselves.
This is true of everything we grow, even when we neglect to mention it in an item description.
