"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the universe a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as separated from the rest a kind of optimal delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of Nature in its beauty."
Agricultural production and processing systems are responsible for much more than a food product. Although our products must satisfy such requirements as nutrition, convenience, taste and appearance, this is only part of the story. Good health and the quality of our lives are linked to our surroundings. A pleasing natural environment promotes a sense of well-being and wholeness. To nurture good health we must also nurture our environment. Care of our resources ensures their availability to us as well as future generations.
We must be accountable and responsible in our production practices. Safe and
healthy food can be produced while maintaining air, soil and water quality. We
can meet human needs as well as those of nature. This can only be accomplished
through the participation and commitment of everyone. We must all understand that
there are consequences to the demands we place on the natural world. We must consider
these consequences in our production practices and be committed to the preservation
of natural systems.
On this site you will find our commitment to producing products that preserve and enhance our natural systems to ensure a brighter future for generations to come.
