Organic Production
Organic and "local" have been the buzz words of the fresh food market for many years. In an era when more and more Americans are paying attention to what goes into the food they eat, organic is a hot topic. According to the USDA, organic agriculture is "an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity. It is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony."
