How We Farm
Leave Those Chemicals Off Your Plate
Certified-organic agriculture avoids most of the synthetic pesticides and herbicides found in conventional agriculture. These substances have been linked to birth defects, obesity, diabetes, ADHD, Alzheimers, Parkinson’s disease, and cancer. Each time you choose organic, you choose to leave these chemicals off your plate.
Since they don’t have the help of chemical pesticides, organically grown fruits and vegetables develop more robust immune systems to resist insects and pests. It turns out that the very same substances that make these plants stronger happen to be the antioxidants and phytonutrients that help our own bodies fight disease!
More than ever, our world swarms with pollutants and harmful residues in our air, water, food, clothing, workplaces, and homes. Much of this is beyond our control, but we can make a difference by choosing what we eat. We also make a huge difference in our community by supporting local organic farms that are committed to preserving our environment.
