We go through a great deal of effort to say that our beansare certified organic. Unlike other terms such as "natural," our beans are regulated through an extensive certification process and undergo an annual inspection to ensure they meet the USDA's National Organic Program requirements. This means that:
- NO GMO's (genetically modified organisms)
- NO toxic pesticides or petroleum-based synthetic fertilizers (Non Organic dry beans may have up to 6-8 different pesticides and herbicides used on them during their production)
- NO irradiation or sewage sludge
- NO antibiotics, growth hormones, or steroids
Farming organically says YES to supporting healthy ecosystems by caring for the soil, plants and animals. We strive to promote wildlife and biodiversity by while focusing on building soil fertility and conserving water. Our products are Certified Organic by CCOF- California Certified Organic Farmers- a not for profit organization located in Santa Cruz, California. (www.ccof.org) We are also inspected annually by the State of California to be listed as an organic farm.
