Candace99 I have been in an entire family of farmers my whole life. They used to use pesticides and now my family chooses to grow organic. You should be happy to know the annoyance you get at night for a time is 100% safe farming. Would you rather have pesticides dumped near your house.? Let me tell you what the people including myself have gotten from pesticides, cancer, early onset Alzhiemers, autoimmune disease and the list goes on. Ryan Martin is a decent man doing his job and helping to save the world for our health and the future for our children.

Bornt Family Farms
Candace99,I don't work for Bornt, Im not a farmer, nor do I live in your area so Im not making light (no pun intended) of your concern but we see the same practice in northern California. Unfortunately, harvesting in the very early morning has become a common practice in California. Once the sun heats the crops it impacts the quality, and it takes a significant amount of energy (electricity) to re-cool the product and take the heat back out. If not the product will never last in the supply chain and then we are wasting food. The energy to run the lights for harvest are a tiny fraction of what it would take to remove the suns heat. As long as the general public demands fresh produce, and conservation of energy for the environment at the same time, this practice is the only real option today. It doesn't help your issue but its safe to assume that any farmer doing this would rather be home sleeping, than in the fields at 3am if there was another choice. I would bet most of the vegetables you buy today are harvested in the same manner.

Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
