100% Organic & Local Transitional Produce
We care about you, your family and the environment. That is why we only carry organic or local transitional produce. Our fresh, nutrient dense produce department is constantly changing based on what’s available. Do you love local as much as we do? We work with some great local farmers. In season, Cinzori Farms, Birdsong Farms, Country Mill, Old Home Place, Mitchell’s Blueberries and more supply us with some of best tasting fruits and vegetables around!
Carrying local produce helps to support local small farms and families and it is also better for the environment. The produce does not have to travel from across the country or from the other side of the world to your home. Instead, you are buying local food that is freshly harvested at its peak ripeness when it has the best taste and is full of nutrients.
Choosing organic is the right decision for both your health, and for the environment. Organic produce does not undergo any chemical processing in either the growing process or in the harvesting process. These foods contain no harmful herbicides, pesticides or other toxins. Only natural fertilizers or compost are used.
Some of the benefits of eating organic produce are that the fruits and vegetables taste better and are better for you. Organic farming places great importance on the nutrients found in the soil, which leads to a healthier and more nutritious product. Research has demonstrated that organic foods are higher in vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients due to the rich organic soil.
