Food Safety

Our farm is rooted in a passion for good, clean food and we've developed a comprehensive Food Safety Plan to ensure our food meets or exceeds the highest safety and quality standards.

 

  • We are in full compliance with the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule, and our farmers have earned certifications from the Produce Safety Alliance/ and Colorado State University Extension.

 

  • We follow Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) & Good Handling Practices (GHP), and are actively working towards our certification in 2020.

 

  • Water Safety- We irrigate our crops with municipal tap water, eliminating the risk of E. Coli from agricultural surface water (the reason behind so many recent lettuce recalls).

 

  • Compost and Soil Amendments- we exercise strict control over our agricultural inputs by using ONLY certified clean compost and National Organic Program (NOP) compliant amendments.
