Our Safe Food Pledge
It is critical for the store and the grower to never give a consumer reasons to doubt the organic integrity of our products. Our future depends on it.
In 2007, Homegrown Organic Farms recognized the need to implement a comprehensive food safety program from field to shipment. It begins with farming practices that consider worker safety, field cleanliness and all aspects of safe product handling. Third-party inspections on every field and packing house ensure that all reasonable precautions for producing safe food are standard everyday practice at Homegrown Organic Farms. Because we supply organic produce that people trust to be healthy for their families, we understand our responsibility to have processes and procedures in place to ensure safety. This include practices such as water testing for bacterial counts, proper worker training in food safety, and complete packing house inspections assessing all aspects of facility management. Just as we are stewards of the land that we farm, we are also caretakers of the people we feed.
