Better than Organic, Chemical Free!
Initially we described our farming practices and produce as “chemical free.” Last year, however, we decided to officially align with the Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) organization, which evolved from the old grass roots organic movement. The problem with certified organic is that years ago big agriculture realized there was money to be made selling “organic” products. Predictability changes began to occur in the USDA’s organic crops. How fruits & vegetables from places such as China, Turkey and Mexico are now certified organic stretches the imagination. Simply stated, Certified Naturally Grown requires a far more rigorous, natural cultivation process than Certified Organic.
