Farm Update –
About 6-weeks ago I started looking at feed options and found a farm in NW Georgia that made the switch from conventional to NON-GMO grains several years ago. Since then, they have been certified by the NON-GMO Project Verified Organization and have actually progressed in the program and re-certified. I invited them for a visit and am glad to announce that we received our first delivery of hen, broiler, and pig feed with the NON-GMO Project Verified butterfly this week.
For us, this is a really BIG deal! It is one thing to buy feed that claims to be NON-GMO - however, it is a huge step forward to be able to buy feed that has been verified as NON-GMO by an independent organization. According to Blog News from April 6th 2017, Non-GMO Project Verified Seal Receives Highest Ranking for Meaningfulness from Consumer Reports.
The report goes on to state in part "Greener Choices, the Food Safety and Sustainability Center at Consumer Reports, released a comprehensive assessment of the Non-GMO Project Verified Seal. Greener Choices works for sweeping, systemic change in the food system. At the core of their work is the belief that there is a clear intersection between how food is produced and public health.
Greener Choices categorizes the Non-GMO Project Verified seal as, “a highly meaningful label for consumers wishing to avoid GMOs in the foods they buy and to support farmers who don’t use GMOs.” Greener Choices notes the meaning of the label is consistent, the Non-GMO Project is free from conflict of interest, and the label was developed with broad public and industry input."
Additionally, we have made it where other farms in our area can also participate and use the same feed in their operations. We firmly believe we need more farms that are regenerative, committed to NON-GMO, and direct market to consumers in their local area.
We hope you are as excited about this news as we are.
