Why Certified Organic
Gilbertie's is the largest certified organic grower in New England, offering over 200 varieties of herbs, vegetable plants, and cut greens in our 20+ greenhouses. For nearly 100 years we've been growing high quality herbs and vegetables. We have always grown organically. As consumers demand for organic produce grew, so did the demand for USDA Organic Certification. In 2005 we began the USDA 3-year long process to certification. Our farm has been certified organic since February 2009.
Many non-organic growers use chemicals to fertilize and treat plant diseases and pests. These chemicals leave residue on plants inside and out. Instead of spraying for bugs, we release "beneficial" insects to deal with the "bad bugs." Each of our plants is grown in an organic certified soil blend. This custom blend took us four years to perfect, ensuring the highest amount of essential oil and taste in each herb and green. Hydroponically grown herbs can not compare in flavor or nutrition to their soil grown counterparts. Organic growing is sometimes more difficult, but the rewards surely outweigh the extra effort.
In the fall of 2015, Petite Edibles began. This new venture was prompted by the desire to share with our community what we experience all year round; fresh herbs and greens. Our cut herbs and greens, like all our plants are certified USDA organic by Baystate Organic Certifiers. All of our greens are hand seeded and harvested daily from our farm directly to our customers ensuring the highest quality product.
We are food safety GAP and HACCP certified. Our water is UV treated to prevent all bacterial growth.
