Cornucopia Releases New Native Natural Berry Map
Not like the large, blemish-free blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries that journey hundreds of miles on tractor-trailers, these native alternate options are grown by farmers with direct relationships with the eaters who benefit from the sometimes-misshapen fruits of their meticulous labor.
Many of those natural farms, usually small-scale operations, provide gross sales from their farms, with lush strawberries offered side-by-side with brilliant asparagus. However in states the place berry season is a treasured time, many of those farms discover a retail dwelling on the grocery cabinets.
Searching for them out is a significant act. “Selecting licensed natural, soil-grown berries is an funding in farmers who’re supporting human well being and your native ecosystem,” says Cornucopia Coverage Director Marie Burcham. “Genuine natural berry growers use a spread of holistic practices that feed the soil microbiome, and vibrant soil is the supply of the vitamins you want.”
