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.”
Weekly Ordering Schedule
From now on the Online Market will be opening on Saturday around 1pm for the Wednesday market instead of the usual Sunday Morning time. This will give members almost an entire extra day of ordering.
Season’s Pick, Locavore and Fruit Boxes
We are now offering small, medium and large Fruit boxes at the online market. These do include some local fruit, but also include non-local USA grown fruit. These are perfect if you’re a juicer!
If you are interested in setting up a recurring box, send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us in the store. We can set you up on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly plan.
Satellite Pick-up sites
We are looking to set up a few satellite pick-up sites around Central Florida to help reduce delivery fees and offer better access to local food. Are you interested in hosting a pick-up site? Do you know a school or business that would allow us to distribute orders once or twice a week? Let us know.
