What hapenned to the trade box
Is all the produce in your CSA certified organic?
We are currently growing some crops with organic methods but on land that is in year two of three for the required transition period. Some of the produce in our CSA is thus designated as transitional. We also purchase fruit that is not always certified organic. We do our best to source fruit responsibly that we don't grow, but like to include in shares. We look first for wholesale certified organic, second with organic methods but not certified, third if grown with some chemicals (peaches for instance are very hard to find organic), then the methods have to be sustainable and with an IPM (integrated pest management)/holistic practices. See the what are transitional crops question for more in-depth information on MIG transitional crops.
