Hannah's is committed to using as many organic ingredients and brands as we can get our hands on. We are first to use only organic ingredients for our sandwich breads. We are first to change our pastry to 95 percent plus organic ingredients, from our apple, blueberry and banana bread to our blondies, brownies and oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies and our 100 percent organic seeds + whole grains health bar.
If it is not organic, we commit to an all natural product. Our turkey and domestic ham is all natural and free of antibiotics, growth hormones, nitrates and sulfates. And our imported hams are produced in Spain and Italy, where guidelines come much closer to organic then US based hams. Simply put, if we can't spell it, its not in our foods.
Why is organic such an über-big deal?
Organic foods positively impact your health, the health of your children, the health of farm workers, and even the health of future generations
Organic food is free of agricultural toxins and industrial chemicals. It supports the environment. Organic production supports natural ecosystems by using long-term farming solutions.
It helps protect our water resources. The elimination of polluting chemicals and toxins improves the quality of our lakes, rivers, ground, and drinking waters.
It increases productivity of the land. Organic agriculture builds productive nutrient-rich soil that resists topsoil erosion.
It helps small farms. Most organic farms are small, independently owned and operated family farms.
It saves energy. Organic farmers are less reliant on non-renewable fossil fuels.
Organic farming builds a biologically diverse, healthy ecosystem.
Organic agriculture respects diversity within the environment, including protection of wildlife by including forage crops in rotation and retaining wetlands, and other natural areas.
That is why organic food is slightly more pricey and it is also why it needs your support for your own benefit but more importantly the benefit of our children and future generations.
