Tierra Farm produces a variety of organic nuts and dried fruits.
The Conscious Buyer Criteria Met:
Tierra Farm is a certified-organic manufacturer and distributor of nuts and dried fruits. Their customers consist mainly of cooperatives and independently owned grocery stores which value working with an employee-owned, environmentally conscious company that manufactures its own products. Tierra Farm handles only certified-organic products which are grown without synthetic pesticides, genetically modified organisms, or chemical fertilizers. This sustains biodiversity, conserves fresh water, and enhances the soil. They generate over 70% of their electricity from solar panels and recycle over 60% of the waste. Their boxes are made from recycled cardboard and their deli cup containers are made from over 50% recycled material—both are recyclable after use. Tierra Farm is continuously looking for better ways to protect the planet.
