FAQ

Is the produce organic?

The vast majority of produce that goes into the CSA shares is certified organic. On occasion some crops come from other farms or fields that, while managed organically, are not currently certified. Any not certified items are disclosed in our newsletters, ordering forms, or at the pick up locations. Meat, cheese, eggs, bread, and other items are locally produced but not always organic.

Where does your meat come from?

We work with a number of meat producers. See “Who are your farm partners?” to view a comprehensive list of producers that we work with. We look for small producers using sustainable practices feeding organic or local or gmo-free feed. For example, your 100% grassfed beef may not be certified, but it is raised on lush beautiful pasture. The pork raised here at LotFotL is not certified organic, but fed organic feed and raised on pasture. We choose meat that we would and do feed to our own family.
