In the last year, Blue River Organic Seed bags have been added with a designation that proudly distinguishes the emphasis Blue River places on true, United States grown products. The label, which reads "USA Grown", is to signify all Blue River seed varieties are proudly grown in the soils of the United States. This is especially important given the concern of imports affecting United States organic markets over the past year. Blue River wants our customers to feel confident that they are receiving the highest standard of USA Grown organic seed. So strongly confident, in fact, that we put our name and a USA Grown label right on each seed bag.
As we celebrate Independence Day around the country, it is a good time to reflect and be thankful for those men and women, along with their families, who collectively sacrificed so much to gain and protect our freedoms. In this day of big Ag mergers and acquisitions, Blue River is thankful that we still live in a country where a hand-full of people, with like minds, can start a small seed company dedicated to providing certified organic seed to its customers nationwide, and that those customers have the right to decide how they farm and protect the soil while providing for their families. Even though the weather and national news can seem to get us down, as Americans, we still have a lot to be thankful for as we commit energy and focus to our organic farms.
With new organic seed choices continuously entering the marketplace, ensure you are making your seed investment decisions with those that care first about the organic farmer and organic industry.
Happy Independence Day!
