CARING FOR THE LAND THAT CARES FOR US

 

As we work to become the future of fresh produce, sustainability is a critical focus. We need healthy land, and healthy people, to continue sharing high-quality produce for many years to come.

LAND USE

 

We look for sustainable ways to make the most of every acre, including terracing fields for better soil retention and erosion control, using biodegradable mulch, applying minimal tilling techniques, and harnessing biodiversity to keep our land and soil rich and healthy.

WATER USE

 

Water is a precious commodity, and we treat it as such. By precisely monitoring crops with field-based moisture monitors, we’re able to carefully meter irrigation efforts to use only what’s needed and no more. Our custom-built retention ponds release only clean water back into nature.

PEOPLE & POWER

 

Sustainability means more than soil, so we’re also focusing on sustainable labor practices that enhance the lives and livelihood of full- and part-time employees. At the same time, wherever possible we’re converting facility roofs into solar panels to make the most of our sunny growing regions.

 

As we continue to grow, we’ll also continue to push our own sustainability standards—we can always do more, and we will.

our priority

THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF THE CONSUMERS WHO TRUST GENERATION FARMS IS OUR NUMBER ONE JOB.

Protecting Produce, Partners, and People

The health and wellbeing of consumers is our top priority. Our goal is to not just meet food safety standards, but to exceed them. Just a few of our food safety practices include:

 

  • Tracking all produce from field to consumer
  • Water sampling by field before planting, then regularly until harvest
  • Weekly equipment pathogen testing in packing facilities
  • Mock recall drills to maintain a sub 1-hour response time
  • Hand washing & hygiene facilities for growers, pickers and employees
  • Safety-first packing with no open facilities
  • Multiple points of inspection before and after packing
  • Maintaining multiple industry safety certifications

 

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Full-time food safety experts lead our efforts, ensuring Generation Farms is always on the forefront of health and safety practices.
