An organic label in the US means that foods must be grown without synthetic pesticides, growth hormones, antibiotics, genetic engineering, or chemical fertilizers. There are numerous benefits to eating organic, locally grown food. For starters, studies have shown that organic plants produce more essential vitamins and nutrients. Organic foods also greatly reduce the intake of harmful chemicals in the human body. Purchasing locally grown produce is also beneficial, including being tastier, fresher, and more nutritious! Produce grown locally results in fresh produce that has had more time to ripen before being picked, which enhances flavors and nutrients.
All this means that you are healthier to Embrace your Space! We are thrilled to be able to offer these healthier options to our customers and hope you’ll take advantage of the opportunity! Come see us today!
