Certified Naturally Grown
We have exciting news to share. Radix Farm is now officially Certified Naturally Grown. What is Certified Naturally Grown? It is a certification process similar to the National Organic Program, but is instead tailored for small-scale, direct-market farms selling in their local communities. CNG standards are based on National Organic Program standards and requires a full commitment to robust organic practices. CNG enables farms to get credit for their practices while showing accountability to their customers without having to go through the expensive and time-consuming process of organic certification.
Another benefit of being Certified Naturally Grown is the transparency and openness to the public – customers will find every farmer’s complete certification application online. You can find our online CNG profile here: RADIX FARM CNG.
Spring on Radix Farm
Here’s an overview of our 2013 season thus far. Spring was a great success and we’re looking forward to an amazing summer. On the farm we’re getting ready for treats like supersweet sungold tomatoes, refreshing cucumber salads, and red, white and blue new potatoes in time for the July 4th.
Hope to see you at the market soon! Thursdays, 3pm-7pm at the Ballston Farmers Market and Fridays, 4pm-8pm at the Petworth Farmers Market.
