WHAT IS...ORGANIC FARMING?
Fruits and vegetables grown the way nature intended it; Without the use of chemicals, synthetic (man made) pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or herbicides. Rotation of crops, superior harvesting make organic foods better nutritionally and taste better! These practices are highly regulated, and offer only the best quality produce in the world.
Fruits and vegetables that are grown by the organic standards, working towards certification. There is a three year waiting period to become an organic farm. One must reach rigid tests, and guidelines to become a certified organic farm. Buying transitional produce will support future organic communities!
Produce grown without soil, in a greenhouse environment with a natural water, mineral solution, harvested with the roots still attached. This makes for clean, fresh, lasting, nutritious produce, all year long (We hope!).
We are proud to offer our customers the largest amount of organic produce in the Rochester area. We support local hydroponic, transitional and organic farmers. Stop by Lori's to find a great selection of quality produce, naturally!
