LOCAL & ORGANIC
Why Grow, Buy & Eat Certified Organic Food?
When you see “certified organic”, you can be assured that this is a verifiable source of food that can be traced back from the plate to the farmer that has produced it.
In both plant and livestock production, organic standards do not allow synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, GMOs, antibiotics, growth hormones, or feed containing animal by-products. Organic standards stipulate animal welfare concerns including low population density, access to fresh air and lots of sunshine!
Organic farms are safer, healthier work environments for the farmers, their families, their workers and for the local communities. Organic farming helps to protect our water, air and soil by leaving a lighter footprint on the earth, and helping to ensure a sustainable future for our children.
