Produce Safety and COVID-19
Because we have an uncompromising commitment to providing our customers with the safest specialty products, health and safety is our top priority at Naturally Grown Farms. Food safety considerations factor into everything we do at the farm. From the moment a seed is planted in our fertile soil to the time a product is picked up or delivered, we maintain innovative techniques including cutting edge traceability system to ensure that the highest standard of food safety protocols is realized throughout our entire process.
Our existing practices are monitored against the Department of Health standards and national guidelines including Good Agricultural Practices. Due to the spread of COVID-19, we have taken additional measures to keep you and your products safe.
We are requiring team members to wash their hands and change their gloves more frequently as recommended by the CDC.
We are emphasizing respiratory and hand hygiene as recommended by the CDC.
We maintain ServSafe awareness of no-contact delivery and pick-up best practices.
We’ve increased the frequency of sanitizing and disinfecting surfaces throughout the workplace, in common high-traffic areas.
We maintain hands-free soap, towels, food-safe wipes, and alcohol-based sanitizers throughout the production area.
We’ve temporarily suspended reusable containers and are using compostable plant made clamshells or produce bags until further notice.
As always, we closely monitor the health of our team members and instructing them to stay home if they experience any cold or flu symptoms or do not feel well. If a family member of one of our team members becomes infected with COVID-19 they must stay home.
Until further notice, we will not be shaking hands, providing samples, or engaging in other close contacts with team members or customers (farm visits and tours have been suspended).
Until further notice, all NGF produce must be packaged on-site at our facility by our team members in our food-safe environment and in our plant-based clamshells.
We believe that nutritious, locally grown micro-size greens, edible flowers, and mushrooms contribute to a healthy lifestyle. We want you to know that we are doing everything we can to provide safe and healthy products to support that lifestyle.
We continue to monitor and adopt protocols recommended by the CDC and other applicable agencies and will continue to offer FREE community safe, no-contact delivery practices in the communities we serve.
As always, customers can pick-up their orders at the farm or farmers market.
