What is Organic?

Organic refers to the agricultural systems used to produce food and other products such as cotton. Organic production systems:

replenish and maintain soil fertility;

eliminate the use of toxic chemical pesticides and fertilizers; and

build a biologically diverse agriculture.

Organic foods are minimally processed to maintain the integrity of the food without artificial ingredients, preservatives or irradiation.

"Although we've been able to have as much cosmetically perfect, out-of-season fruit and vegetables as anyone could possibly want, the flavor, freshness, variety, and wholesomeness of produce have been terribly diminished...

Organic and naturally raised ingredients happen to be consistent with both what we want for our kitchen and what we want for our community and our larger environment."     Alice Waters

Organic Food Tastes Great!

It's common sense... well-balanced soils grow strong healthy plants which taste better. Simply try an organic orange, carrot or vine-ripened tomato for a sweet and juicy flavor treat! Recent research indicates organic foods may contain more nutrients as well. Great chefs just can't get enough of it.

You get delicious, nutritious foods when you buy certified organic products... an everyday practice that's also good for Mother Earth.

Organic food and fiber is now widely distributed through the U.S., Canada and Europe. In the U.S., many farmers markets carry organic.
