What does SUSTAINABLE mean? Market at Dothan prides itself on offering the freshest, purest, cleanest grown and most natural products in the Wiregrass, but . . . we are not “organic.” The word “organic” was taken over, ‘owned’ if you will, by the USDA in 2002 and can only be used for products that meet minimum certification requirements following basic guidelines they have set forth. The irony of “organic” is that organic products can be (unsustainably) produced on large industrial farms, and farms that are not certified organic can produce wholesome, equally healthy food using methods that will sustain the farm’s productivity for generations.
The word, “sustainable” is fairly new to agriculture. 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. This form of agriculture enables us to produce healthful food without compromising future generations’ ability to do the same. Read More on our Question & Answer Page.
