Live Local Organic was built on the idea that everyone deserves to have access to high quality, local, organic produce.
The problem is that many farmers simply can’t feasibly grow organic produce because it would mean setting aside their land for three years to assure that it meets USDA Certification standards.
It’s also becoming known the incredibly harmful effect that the chemicals, pesticides, and genetic modification (GMO) that is used in many farms can have on the human body
Making a difference in your tummy, and in the world
How can you farm in a way that is good for the planet, good for the consumer and good for business? Aquaponics is a innovative solution to bring organic, local produce to consumers who want a higher quality product that doesn't harm the planet through farming processes.
We want people to know how their food is being made, period. That is why we always invite customers to come tour our facility, it’s why we put a “harvest date” on all of our packaging, and it’s why we put the name of the person who harvested your produce right on the label.
We have had enough of farmers putting who-knows-what into crops that ship thousands of miles before they end up on the shelf. It’s time for producers to be accountable to their customers, and in order to do that, we think customers need to know-or at least have the ability to know-who their farmer is. It just makes sense.
We are reshaping the mindset of business in the United States.
We are also focused on building sustainable systems that focus on more than just the bottom line. Profits are essential for a successful business, however solely focusing on making money is what drives companies to become so focused on efficiency that they partake in unethical business practices and lose out on quality.
We feel that if we invest in our people, in ethical and environmentally friendly practices, and in being an ethically minded company, the benefits will far outweigh the drawbacks. Profit is the goal, but doing the right thing is good business.
