Growing Organic

Organic farming is a direct link to good health.

When you see this green label, it means the product has been “Certified Organic” by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In October 2002, the USDA put into place a set of national standards to ensure that any foods with this label were produced using the highest organic production and handling standards in the world.

There are a myriad of resources out there explaining why organic is the best choice for you and your family. If you've found your way to this page, you probably know most of them. If you're wondering why we chose to grow organic, the answer is simple: Northern Natural strongly believes that organic farming is a direct link to good health. That’s our story, and we’re sticking to it. Plus...it just tastes better!
