Benefits of Organics - Quality
FreshnessCurrently, especially in the Bay Area, most organic produce is supplied by local, regional farms, which means each item has had to travel less time and a shorter distance to get to your plate.
Contrast this to conventionally-grown produce that averages 1500–2500 miles to get to your supermarkets, often picked green and then chemically ripened at its final destination.
(Unfortunately, with current food distribution channels, organic produce in your local store is not necessarily from local farms, and people mistakenly think organics spoil quicker. Fresh, organic produce is naturally healthier and stays fresh longer.)
TasteOrganic produce is grown in its natural environment and without toxic chemicals. Healthy produce from healthy soil means the best-tasting fruits and vegetables available.
