Food & Supplements > Farms - Organic

Local organic farms.  Many of these farms offer community supported agriculture (CSA) or u-pick programs and participate in farmers markets. Organic refers not only to the food itself, but also to how it is produced and processed. Its production is based on a system of farming that mimics natural ecosystems and maintains and replenishes the fertility and nutrients of the soil. Organic production integrates cultural, biological and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance and conserve biodiversity.
