HOMEGROWN LOCAL FOOD COOPERATIVE



Back by popular demand!




Since Florida doesn’t have a single Certified Organic diary farm, Homegrown Co-op is sourcing high quality products from Natural by Nature a 100% organic operation up in the State of Pennsylvania. Adhering to the strictest standards, Natural by Nature carries a Certified Organic and Certified Grass-Fed Labels in addition to their entire product line being blessed Kosher.

Natural Dairy Products Corporation is the producer of Natural By Nature organic, grass-fed, dairy products. Natural Dairy Products Corporation (NDPC) was started in 1994 by Ned MacArthur and his father Norman. Ned had quit milking cows a year earlier because of low milk prices and the frustration that there was no system by which farmers could sell milk organically.

Ned and Norman teamed up with four organic dairy farmers in Lancaster County, PA and created a whole system in which grass-fed organic milk could be produced, transported, processed and packaged, independent of the huge, volume based milk industry. Strict adherence to organic principles and a dedication to high quality were the rules, which Ned, Norman and the farmers demanded of each other.

Their mission is: “To promote and support organic farming and the sustainable use of our natural resources. To produce foods that benefit consumers and farmers alike. To use the principles of grass based dairy production as a means to improve the quality of our products, maximize the health of our cows and protect our watersheds. To make a living for our families, based on these strongly held principles.”

Featured Produce at Homegrown



Sapodilla




Sapodilla is a tropical fruit grown in South Florida. The ripe fruit has the consistency and taste similar to a pear dipped in brown sugar. Sapodilla is rich in calories and is a very good source of dietary fiber. Fresh ripe fruit also contains significant amounts of Vitamin C, Vitamin A and potassium. Check out this video about Sapodilla for more information



Lacinato Kale



Lacinato Kale, also known as Dinosaur or Tuscan Kale is slightly sweeter than the more widely know curly-leaf kale. The leaves are darker, more narrow and have an embossed texture. Low in calories and high in Vitamin A, Vitamin K and Vitamin C, Kale is a nutritional powerhouse.
