In three words - Freshness, Nutrition, and Taste. Plants gain the nutrients they provide from the soil. Our produce is grown in the most nutrient rich soil possible. This results from crop variation, animal fertilization, and peak harvesting. Most grocery store produce is shipped in from large, industrial farms employing monocrop farming. They grow the same items in the same soil year after year, depleting the soil and making the plants weak and vulnerable to pests. The plants then require the use of harmful, cancer-causing pesticides. This produce is harvested weeks in advance of their maximum nutrient-density. It is then stored, shipped, and stored again at distribution centers before it is made available for purchase.
We ensure your produce is harvested hours before shipment, while observing the best handling techniques. With a plant box subscription, your produce tastes better, lasts longer, and is healthier for you and the earth. Plus with Round Right Farm CSA you open new, wholesome foods options you would never have otherwise discovered. It does not get more healthy, sustainable, and tasty than that!
Subscribing to the farm also means that you're supporting the livelihood of a local farmer who is committed to diversified healthy farming. We focus on ever-increasing regernerative organic farming practices through biological diversity. Large scale commercial agriculture endangers the seed pool for future generations. At Round Right Farm, we raise a mixture of heirloom, open-pollinated, and hybrid varieties. By keeping a mixture of varieties alive, we are helping to ensure our descendants will choices, better health, and future farming options. We never grow GMO crops and order from seed companies who are committed to non-GMO varieties.
