      We Believe Natural and Organic is Better

            The central idea behind natural and organic farming is sustainability. It represents the “True” cost of production, taking all environmental factors into consideration unlike almost all other goods currently produced. By increasing the health of the environment, you are insuring the health of the crops and ultimately the health of all living things. It's about maintaining natural ecological balances. This beautiful balance gives us much more than just healthy fruits and vegetables.

      10 reasons to Eat Organic Foods:

      • Organic products meet stringent standards.

        Organic certification is the public's assurance that products have been grown and handled according to strict procedures without persistent toxic chemical inputs. Conventionally grown produce has zero regulation on how it can be grown.

      • Organic food tastes great!

        It's common sense - well-balanced soils produce strong, healthy plants that become nourishing food for people and animals.

      • Organic production reduces health risks.

        Many EPA-approved pesticides were registered long before extensive research linked these chemicals to cancer and other diseases. Organic agriculture is one way to prevent any more of these chemicals from getting into the air, earth and water that sustains us.

      • Organic farms respect our water resources.

        The elimination of polluting chemicals and nitrogen leaching, done in combination with soil building, protects and conserves water resources.

      • Organic farms build healthy soil.

        Soil is the foundation of the food chain. The primary focus of organic farming is to use practices that build healthy soils.

      • Organic farming works in harmony with nature.

        Organic agriculture respects the balance demanded of a healthy ecosystem: wildlife is encouraged by including forage crops in rotation and by retaining fence rows, wetlands, and other natural areas.

      • Organic producers are leaders in innovative research.

        Organic farmers have led the way, largely at their own expense, with innovative on-farm research aimed at reducing pesticide use and minimizing agriculture's impact on the environment

      • Organic producers strive to preserve diversity.

        The loss of a variety of species (biodiversity) is one of the most pressing environmental concerns. The good news is that many organic farmers and gardeners have been collecting and preserving seeds, and growing unusual varieties for decades.

      • Organic farming helps keep rural communities healthy.

        The USDA reports that half of U.S. farm production comes from only 2% of farms. Organic agriculture can be a lifeline for small farms because it offers an alternative market where sellers can command fair prices for crops.

      • Organic abundance.

        Foods and non-foods alike! - Now every food category has an organic alternative. And non-food agricultural products are being grown organically - even cotton, which most experts felt could not be grown this way.

      In short, organic agriculture is better for the earth, better for people and animals, and better for you.

      Where does the food come from?

            Our produce comes from local regional farms when available. Many people have differing views on what is to be considered a local product. Rather than putting a concrete distance on mileage from our location, we like to use a generally accepted definition of local as being “within a day’s leisurely drive from one's home”. Much of our weekly selection of produce fits into this definition.

            We strive to locate items with the lowest carbon footprint. Our regions organic food comes from a limited number of organic farms. For this reason we must occasionally source from outside our local region. Items which cannot be grown in our local region are also sourced with our carbon footprint in mind.

            More reasons to buy local

      • Buying local helps the environment by greatly reducing shipping distances.

      • Buying local gives us the ability to deliver produce which has been harvested just days before you receive it.

      • Last, but not least, buying locally helps our local economy prosper.

      Organic Produce Grown in Mexico.

            A question we are frequently asked is "How can we be sure that organic food grown in Mexico is truly organic?” This question tends to draw concern from quite a few of our customers.

            In winter and early spring, while most of our regional farms are inactive, grocery store produce sections in the U.S. are plenty abundant with fresh fruits and vegetables – much of which comes from Mexico. For many shoppers, knowing that their food comes from Mexico will automatically trigger this question – “ if Mexican produce is labeled organic, how do we know that it is reliably organic and can we trust that it’s safe to eat?”

            Unfortunately, there are far too many misconceptions and misunderstandings about Mexican grown produce – even when it’s raised organically. The most important line that I will write in this article is the following: organic imports from Mexico must meet USDA organic standards. That’s really all you need to know in a nutshell, but let’s go ahead and explore this further. To sell a certified organic item of food in the United States, grown in the United States, Mexico, or anywhere else in the world, it must meet all the strict requirements of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Organic Program. This means that it was produced without the use of toxic synthetic pesticides, artificial fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or irradiation. As important, it must then be certified by a USDA-accredited agency. The certification process includes: 1) inspection of farm fields and processing facilities 2) detailed record keeping of what inputs were applied to the land, and 3) if determined a need for – soil and water testing.

            Currently, at least 15 organic certification agencies operate in Mexico. The National Organic Program (NOP) has been recognized and enforced since October 2002, when the United States implemented the Organic Food Production Act. In February 2006, the Mexican government published its own Law of Organic Products and with similar regulations. On-farm audits and regular border inspections are important parts of organic certification and food safety testing in Mexico.

            There are farms in Mexico that are certified both as organic and for food safety by U.S. based companies that conduct microbiological testing for E. coli and salmonella and chemical testing for pesticides. The USDA started regular and extensive testing at border inspections to fight against food safety threats. Most Mexican produce travels to the United States via truck and when a truck is set aside for scrutiny, you can’t move the product until the lab results return.

            Mexico is estimated to have more than 110,000 organic farmers, considered the greatest number in any country of the world. More than 90 percent of these growers farm on less than 9 acres and sell their products collectively. The majority of Mexico’s organic farmers grow for the export market with 90% of the organic food grown in Mexico being raised for export. The majority of Mexico’s organic farmers grow for the export market out of necessity, as there is a lack of demand for domestic organics in Mexico.

            Interestingly though, by importing food from Mexican growers who receive a living wage, particularly those who sell products recognized as “Fair Trade, we are allowing farmers to remain in their own communities rather than leave home to find employment. If they did not have the opportunity to export their crops to the U.S and therefore make a living wage, many of these farmers would likely leave Mexico to become part of the migrant labor force in order to provide for themselves and their families. In the United States, so much of our food system – from farm to plate – often relies on a labor force that comes from Mexico. The USDA reports that more than half the hired workers employed by U.S. produce growers are believed to be undocumented workers.

            Whether by intention or simply coincidence, the rise of organic food production in Mexico has been a very healthy development for farmers and the people of the Mexican farming communities. It’s about far more than just having our favorite organic fruit and vegetables available during the winter months. And for those concerned about food safety – organic fresh produce grown in Mexico is just fine – it’s fully certified organic, meeting the same certification requirements as what we grow here in the United States.
