You Have a Right To Know What Goes in Your Body & What You Eat — IMPORTANT

I would like to share this important message from my Organic farmer, since I couldn’t word this any better.

 We believe you have a right to know what’s in your food.

Our parents started farming organically in 1976 on the farm that we (Thaddeus, Freeman and Noah) run today. They distrusted new agriculture “tools” like pesticides and synthetic fertilizers and had a pretty good idea that those technologies did not bode well for a healthy food supply.  At Farm Fresh To You, we provide you with fresh, seasonal, quality produce that continues our parents’ legacy with what we call “beyond organic” growing practices that go much farther than required by our organic certification.

We believe in connecting you to the farm that grows your food because

this gives you, as a consumer, the information you need to make an

educated choice about what food you eat and feed your family.

This transparency is the core belief of what we do.

For this reason, Farm Fresh To You is supporting Prop 37

on the November 6th ballot.

 

Prop 37, also known as the Right to Know ballot initiative, simply requires that genetically engineered food (GEs or GMOs) be labeled. Accurate labels allow consumers to make informed choices about what they buy and eat.

 

Did you know that most developed nations already require labeling of GMO foods – all of  the European Union, Japan, China, South Korea and Russia, to name just of few of the more than 50 countries that have this requirement.

We’re very excited to see strong support among Californians for Prop 37 despite big agriculture and business conglomerates contributing millions of dollars to oppose the proposition.  This is the first time in our company history that we’ve publicly declared our support on a ballot initiative.

 

As you consider your position on Prop 37, we thank you for allowing us to share ours and encourage you to vote yes on November 6th.

 

PROP 37 - It’s not a ban.  It’s a label.Prop 37 requires labeling on raw or processed food offered for sale to consumers if the food is made from plants or animals with genetic material changed in specified ways. It’s about a right to know.
