Eagle Springs Organic (top of page)

At Eagle Springs Organic we cultivate a diverse selection of fresh fruit and vegetables and compassionately raise animal livestock through a holistic and progressive approach to agriculture.

We take advantage of every symbiotic relationship existing between each segment of our certified organic farm.  This includes vegetables, fruit, livestock, irrigation, and energy consumption.  We utilize every resource available to us and make sure that waste from one process is used as an input for other processes.  This increases the efficiency and sustainability of the farm.  Unusable produce that's too ripe or fell from the branch make great animal food and animal manure is composted to feed the plants growing in the field.  Worms break down plant debris to create nutrients that go back into the growing beds to support the next crop.  Letting overgrown lettuce go to seed provides a sure supply of organic seed for next year.

Village Harvest Rice (top of page)
Based in San Francisco, CA, Village Harvest originally imported and sold three types of rice sources uniquely from their traditional origins including Thai Jasmine Rice, Indian Basmati and Italian Arborio. The success of these products led to expanding the line with brown and organic choices in the same categories. And because we are constantly working to provide the best rice and grains the world has to offer, Golden Quinoa and GABA Rice are the latest additions to our collection.
