--God said, "I need somebody strong enough to clear trees and heave bails... who will stop his mower for an hour to splint the broken leg of a meadow lark. It had to be somebody who'd plow deep and straight and not cut corners. Somebody to seed, weed, feed... and finish a hard week's work with a five-mile drive to church. -So God Made a Farmer
God, Family, and Growth
Much like our crops, our lives need roots. Strong roots. Good businesses are built on good people. We aren't perfect. We struggle to keep our faith and family first like many people. Our farm is an organic extension of us and a continual growing process. But without our roots, we would not be the farm we are today.
Chemical Free and Nutritious
Paradise Produce is dedicated to producing the highest quality local food for our discerning customers. We use no chemicals, but instead through mineralization of the soil, balanced nutrition, and careful handling let the natural processes of the earth encourage our crops to yield bountifully.
Relationships and Community
From our 5 min interactions with new customers at markets to our perennial CSA members, we value relationships. Community supports each other, each doing his or her part and respecting fences. Farmers need community support as much as families need food. We want to be your farmer. We'd love to talk and share with you what we have learned and grown. You can even come work along side us as seasonal intern and we'll teach you what we know.
GMO and Cell Fusion Free
We are committed to growing only natural hybrid and heirloom crops. This means no GMOs and no Cell Fusion seeds. Cell Fusion is method of injecting foreign plant (GMO uses animal) genes into a seed is banned in Europe. We don't think it belongs in America, contrary to what the American Organic Standard Certification says. Part of our job is to stay informed so we can put the best produce available on your table.
