Do you use pesticides or chemicals on your products?
We do use chemicals on our farm. However, we do so with caution. If for some reason we have to treat for a pest we normally apply less than the specified dosage on the packaging. Our foods and farming practices are audited and certified by the Food Alliance (www.foodalliance.org). They have a black list of products that is ever changing and can be found here: http://foodalliance.org/certification/prohibited-pesticide-list-with-trade-names.pdf/view?searchterm=pesticid
Are your products gluten free?
Our products are cleaned in a facility that also cleans wheat. A clean down process is performed in between products. In addition, we have a strict Food Safety program and part of our program requires we test our foods for gluten. Quarterly we send food samples of our products to ensure our cleaning programs are working properly. To date the products we have sent off do qualify for Gluten Free, however we do not send every product run for certification nor do we claim in advertising to be Gluten Free.
***If you are purchasing a large volume of products from us (over 40,000 lbs) and require we perform the test we will be happy to.
What products are processed in your facilities that contain any of the top eight allergens?
The only one of the top eight allergens processed in our facility is wheat. We do a clean down in between products.
Are you organic?
No we are not organic; however we have been certified as a sustainable farm by The Food Alliance. They have strict guidelines and regulations that we must abide by to maintain that certification including monitoring of the items listed below.
