BOXWOOD CLEANLINESS CERTIFIED
Updated: Jun 16, 2022
Boxwood Blight has become an increasingly strong concern across the US as new cases continue to emerge. In February of 2018, Tennessee imposed a quarantine to prevent the spread of the disease. Other states have followed suit with tightened regulations.
Gold Family Farms, located in Oregon’s fertile Tualatin Valley has always been Boxwood Blight free. Gold Family Farms voluntarily participates in Oregon’s Boxwood Blight Cleanliness Program and is certified free of any Boxwood Blight.
You can feel confident in the high quality plants you purchase from Gold Family Farms. Our quality is home grown. We never buy-in Boxwood plants from other nurseries. We always propagate from our own host plants. We have a well trained team who regularly inspect the plants for any signs of disease. We regularly test and monitor for disease through Oregon State University and have a rigorous and continuous cleanliness program.
To assure the quality and cleanliness of our Boxwoods, when you visit Gold Family Farms, there are some areas where you can look, but you can’t touch. We are happy for you to visit us, and it’s not that we love to chauffeur folks around, but we insist on using our vehicles to limit any possibilities of contamination or introduction by outside vehicles. We don’t allow guests to get out of their cars in certain areas and this is to prevent accidental contamination or introduction from any other nurseries or locations.
Gold Family Farms is committed to producing the highest quality plants at the lowest possible cost. We continually improve our processes and quality to deliver you the best product. You can rest assured that our teams are hard at work to provide you with worry free product that will meet the most stringent tests for cleanliness.
