FAQs about GMOs:
Q: Does your organic produce have GMOs?
A: No. Certified organic produce cannot be grown from GM (genetically modified) seed. The seed must be certified organic.
Q: But how do you know for sure that they used the right seed?
A: All of our farms keep detailed records of seed purchases and planting records in order to maintain their organic certification.
Q: Really? Seedless watermelon? That must be some kind of GMO!
A: Genes are involved, but they aren't modified in any kind of unnatural way. Two different types of watermelon plants with different genetic structures are combined through pollination and the result is a seedless watermelon. They've been around for about forty years and they are totally natural and, with our certified organic vendors, they are certified organic too!
Q: Ok, so where are the GMOs in our food?
A: Most non organic corn and corn byproducts, conventional Hawaiian Papaya, Canola (rapeseed), Soy, and Sugar Beets are conventional crops that are likely to be modified. You have to read labels carefully.
