Q: Are your meats organic?

A: They are all raised organically. All of the meats are pasture raised and provided for as closely as Mother Nature would. They are all treated with dignity and respect, as well; they are not given any growth hormones, steroids, or antibiotics.

Q: Is Nicholyn Farms an organic farm?

A: We believe that any family, of any income, should be able to afford to eat high quality food that has been raised and grown with the utmost care and respect, to maximize the healthy benefits of foods. This has always been our own standard. If we went through the process and became a certified organic producer, all of our costs to run our business would increase significantly, and while the quality and product would remain the same high standard we currently maintain, the cost to our consumers would increase as well. For example, meats that are labeled “organic” generally cost $4/lb more than our meats, simply because of the cost to the business to sustain this membership.­­­

Q: Is your produce organic?

A: Where possible and economically viable our produce is organic. If the produce is not our own; we put far more emphasis on knowing where the produce was grown, and with which practices it was grown with, than we do on it being “Certified Organic”. In our eyes locally grown, spray free crops are preferred over items that are “certified organic” and travelling miles to get to our door.

Q: What is a co-packer?

A: A co-packer is a business that helps other business to produce the preserves or jarred items you see on the shelf. Co-packers use the same recipes and ingredients that we would use. Co-packers have the equipment (which is quite expensive) necessary to produce larger batches of the product. This helps us ensure we have an ample supply of our products year round.

Q: What is sustainable farming?

A: In simplest terms, sustainable agriculture is the production of food, fiber, or other plant or animal products using farming techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare.

Q: Where are your jarred products made?

A: Our signature items are made in house. Some of our products are made for us using a co-packer.
