Why local organic?

Here at Eastport Organics we produce premium local organic food, period. It's truly organic locally produced food and it makes sense on all levels. No middlemen, no packaging, no need for chemical inputs. Just clean healthy soil producing clean healthy food picked fresh for you and available either at the farm here in Eastport, or via local farmers' markets.

Today’s modern chemically-laden agricultural practices necessitate the use of carbon heavy high cost inputs such as; heavy machinery, fertilizer, herbicides, pesticides, fungicides and a transport system that is engaged from top to bottom. At Eastport Organics our system depends on manual labor, healthy soil, crop rotation and a minimal amount of transport from top to bottom. But our system is more than what you think of when you hear the term ‘organic’.

We pride ourselves in growing our food with as many locally available materials as possible. By only using compost made from seaweed / kelp, fish waste, animals manures and peat to feed our soil we are creating super healthy clean soil and at the same time our own unique ‘terroir’, the French term literally translated to mean ‘sense of a place’.

By only using locally available premium inputs with almost no supply chain from seed to plate our food takes on a value that is more than the organic label you see on industrially produced food at the grocery store.
