Sweet Water’s Organic Certification Process
Update: We've received our USDA Organic Certification and our sprouts, micros and wheatgrass are all know USDA Certified Organic.
We're getting closer to our organic certification everyday. While not 100% of the products we sell from Sweet Water will be certified all are grown from organic seed and are not treated with chemical agents. Many of you have asked about the fish - there is no organic certification for fish in the United States.
Update: A recent confidential complaint against Sweet Water was checked into by the NOP and closed without incident.
Where we are at – we’ve been working diligently over the last year to firm up USDA certification for our farm. Yes, this should have been done long ago but it wasn’t a priority for our previous staff and our current staff has stayed quite busy between community events, education and the everyday running of the farm, regardless we’ve made progress. Working with our organic certifying agency we’ve figured out which part of our operations can be certified right away and the ones that we’ll need to work on. Once we go through our next inspection we should have more news and possibly a target date for a change in our retail packaging.
