Fresh Produce

Fresh Produce

Fresh produce grown organically is one of the most wholesome, healthy foods you can consume. Most organic fresh produce contains nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals vital to a healthy diet. Usually, produce purchased at supermarkets are grown using conventional or synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, artificial flavors, colors, waxes or preservatives or other non-organic ingredients. These modern growing methods have proved to be harmful to wildlife and human health. Local food is fresher and tastes better than food that has been trucked or flown in from thousands of miles away. Think you can't taste the difference between lettuce picked yesterday and lettuce picked last week, factory-washed, and sealed in plastic? Do a taste-test at home. I'm betting you can. In-season, locally grown tomatoes burst with flavor that's easy to forget if you only eat ones that are artificially ripened with gas. The environmental question of where your food comes from is bigger than its carbon footprint. By buying foods grown and raised closer to where you live, you help maintain farmland and green space in your area. Knowing your farmer connects you to the people who raise and grow it – to your community!

It all begins with the SEED!

At Patch of Heaven Farm, we only use heirloom varieties of seeds and some well scrutinized hybrid varieties. NEVER -GMO seeds. Why? We believe that only God can create the perfect seed. Man can never improve on what God has created: Then God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them, And it was so. 12  The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, And trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind, And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:11-12";
What is a GMO?
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and virus genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods. A growing body of evidence connects GMOs with health problems, environmental damage, and a violation of farmers’ and consumers’ rights. More than 60 countries around the world require GMOs to be labeled. Globally, there are also 300 regions with outright bans on growing GMOs. Furthermore, there are no GMO labeling laws in America. Thus, more Americans are taking matters into their own hands and choosing to opt out of the GMO experiment. We are proud to say that our produce is grown using natural methods from the seed to the vegetable!
