We wholesale vegetables to Cheryl Wixson's Kitchen and she makes Bread and Butter Pickles (among lots of other tasty things) for her Winter CSA members. She uses Certified Organic produce grown in Maine for all of her canned products.
We love Crown of Maine! They're a Maine based company that distributes Maine grown foods to Maine people all of the state through local natural food stores, restaurants, and local buying clubs. Look for Ripley Farm produce through COMOC starting in October and through the winter, especially sweet carrots, rutabaga, turnips, and more!
The Cornucopia Institute advocates for authentic organic certification standards, family scale farming, and informed consumers. Their dairy, egg, and cereal "scorecards" and other research help consumers decide what buying choices to make.
