How We Classify our Produce
We are proud to carry local and organic produce in our store. Identifying how your produce was grown is easy at GFG — just look at the label!
Local produce is grown within 100 miles of Good Foods Grocery.
Per the USDA, ” certified organic foods are grown and processed according to federal guidelines addressing, among many factors, soil quality, animal raising practices, pest and weed control, and use of additives. Organic producers rely on natural substances and physical, mechanical, or biologically based farming methods to the fullest extent possible.”
Certified Naturally Grown (CNG)
Certified Naturally Grown is a certification often attained by smaller sustainable farmers and beekeepers, as an affordable and transparent option for organic producers. Per CNG, “Certified Naturally Grown farmers don’t use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicide, or GMOs, just like certified Organic farmers.”
When you see this label added to a local product it means it was grown hydroponically. Hydroponics is a method of growing plants in a water based, nutrient rich solution. Hydroponics does not use soil, instead the root system is supported using an inert medium such as perlite, rockwool, clay pellets, peat moss, or vermiculite.
We are proud to source some of our produce from local farmers, including:
Meet the Manager
I have worked at Good Foods Grocery for 20 years and in the produce industry for 35. I really enjoy meeting all of our wonderful customers and being able to provide them with a wide variety of fresh organic produce. I have established close relationships with many farmers and have developed the ability to offer a large selection of local produce as well. GFG is my second family and I am blessed to be working for such a great company. Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, amusement parks, the beach, spending time with my wife and 2 daughters and spoiling my first granddaughter!
