What are Organic Animals and Plants?
Organic animals and plants are fed naturally and heavily regulated by the USDA to ensure only strictly enforced methods and approved substances are used when foods are grown and processed. The USDA is the regulating agency for Organic. For plants, that would include using organic seeds, managing weeds by tillage and cultivation practices and enhancing soil health via crop rotations and cover crops. For animals, it includes using 100% organic feed and maximizing pasture/outdoor access.
At Price Chopper and Market 32, we are proud to sell Full Circle Organic products. Full Circle’s Mission Statement is as follows:
“Our mission is to change the food system by providing a healthy, fresh alternative to industrial food. Large-scale agriculture often uses pesticides, herbicides, genetic modification and employs risky monoculture practices. Fresh, organic produce tastes better, is brimming with nutrients, and preserves our soil, our water, and the entire ecosystem. That’s why Full Circle fills every box with food that’s real and genuine.”
