In order to be labeled “organic”, vegetables, herbs and fruits must be grown in a soil-based environment using a plant or an animal-based fertilizer.

In other terms, with commercial organic farming, although free from pesticides and GMOs, the tomatoes, lettuce, and broccoli which you might find in stores are usually grown in a soil depleted from nutrients, which often times is enhanced with animal-based fertilizers derived from pigs, cows, horses, chickens, etc. Although we are in full support of organic farming, we deplore the fact that organic farmers are only compelled to use organic fertilizers, but are not under the obligation to tell customers whether such fertilizers are plant-based or animal-based.

Our vegetables, herbs and fruits have more nutrients than their counterparts grown in soil and we can prove it!
