You know that Big Tree Organic Farms provides organic almonds, but what does it mean to be organic and why is it so important?
Simply put, organic means natural, the way nature intended.
As an organic almond supplier, we believe that growing crops naturally is better for our families, our community, and our planet. We take care to work with farmers that do not contaminate the water, air, or almonds they grow with any synthetic residues. We consistently strive to deliver clean and highly nutritious foods to people throughout the world.
We are Certified Organic because we do not work with any almonds that contain or have been in contact with pesticides, herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, antibiotics or synthetic hormones. We follow strict guidelines set by both national and international organic standards for the methods, practices, substances, and handling procedures used for our organic almonds.
Organic isn't always easy, but we and our growers believe that it is worth it, to ensure that our environment and our almonds are safe and healthy now and in our future.
