Earthgrown LogoOur mission includes promoting organic agriculture as a whole, developing healthy produce choices in the greater Midwest, supporting the local economy, and being a strong leader in the organic industry. The organic industry is an ever-changing and evolving process, with challenges abound, but we relish and embrace the opportunity to face them head on. Many things that were once thought impossible have become commonplace! However, this does not stop us from finding creative and innovative ways to continually move forward. Organic agriculture reflects a desire to not only preserve the planet for future generations but also a desire to ensure the health, vitality, and longevity of those generations. We see the urgent need for education throughout the multiple levels of the produce industry and actively seek partners to spread the accessibility of nourishing food options. We continuously encourage and support programs that give back to growers and to their communities.  We support all of our customers, both big and small, in hopes that the phrase “a rising tide raises all boats” will prove itself true again and again. We are enthusiastically and eagerly looking forward to a future where organic produce is the standard.
