Why Eat Organic Food?
Organic farmers are stewards of the land who preserve the quality of the soil and water for future generations. Organic produce is grown using methods that promote soil fertility and a healthy farm ecosystem.
No herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, synthetic fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms are used during the farming process or added to the food.
Organic farming practices are safe
Pests are controlled through crop rotation, physical removal, and biological controls.
Weeds are controlled by hand hoeing and mechanical cultivation.
Fertility and soil structure are maintained through the introduction of organic matter, such as compost, and cover crops. Micro-organisms from this matter also break down minerals in the soil so that plants can absorb them and grow to be strong and healthy.
Organic food is healthy
Organic farming practices leave no toxic residues on your food! They do not pollute the air, water, or soil of your community, leaving the environment a healthy place for humans, animals, and plants to live.
Fresh organic produce is delicious
Field ripened and freshly picked local organic produce is healthier because it contains more nutrients. Our produce goes right from the field to you, so there is no need for dangerous practices such as irradiation, and gassing are not needed to ripen it or keep it fresh. We harvest most of the produce the day before you receive it!
