Standard Process Farm Ranks Among the
Top Wisconsin Organic Farm
When it comes to organic farming, Standard Process is a leader. And, we're in good company in the state of Wisconsin, home to our corporate headquarters. According to statistics released in February by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Wisconsin is the second state in the nation in number of organic farms, and ranks second since the inception of the National Organic Program in 2002.
Of the 1,443 organic farms in Wisconsin, the Standard Process certified-organic farm is in the top nine percent, in terms of acreage. And, we put that acreage to good use, with plans calling for the production of 6.5 million pounds of vegetables this year. That's eight tons of whole food per acre! Standard Process professionally maintains its organic farm because we understand that your patients rely on you to help maintain or improve their health-and good health comes from nutrition. And, as our founder Dr. Royal Lee said, "The best nutrients come from whole foods." Whole foods that we regularly grow for their high nutrient content include: alfalfa, barley grass, beets, Brussels sprouts, buckwheat, kale, kidney beans, oats, pea vine, and Spanish black radish. Standard Process organically farms 420 acres of rich Wisconsin soil to provide high-quality raw materials used in our supplements.
How organic certification helps our patients:
· All of the seeds we use are organic (when available), and always untreated and free of genetically modified organisms (GMO)
· Zero tolerance for genetically modified seed, synthetic herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, or seed treatments. Our whole foods are cultivated with only natural nutrition and no synthetic fertilizer.
· We concentrate on the soil to ensure maximum soil health. That's why every field is professionally tiled to optimize drainage. And, we set our soil testing levels well beyond what's required because we believe that well-managed soil produces high-quality raw materials.
· Irrigation water is supplied from a naturally occurring artesian flowage, although we water as infrequently as possible to encourage the roots dig deep down and find nutrition. The Standard Process Farm was first certified organic 10 years ago. When you use Standard Process supplements for your patient's health, you can be assured that the whole food nutrition was grown with a watchful eye from the ground up.
