Thanks Swanton Berry Farm for your Organic Strawberries!

California's first organic strawberry grower, Jim Cochran of Swanton Berry Farm, is proving that growing succulent strawberries that won’t cause health problems isn’t just possible, it’s profitable!

In 1981 Jim Cochran was poisoned by the chemicals used to grow strawberries. "This was when it was becoming obvious that pesticides were way more harmful than people had been led to believe," he says in an article titled, Kicking the Chemical Habit, by Laura Frasier for onearth.  Soon after, he planted his first crop of organic strawberries. 

Only 4% of Cali strawberries are grown organically today. Environmentalists and public health experts are trying to stop California from allowing farmers to apply a known carcinogen (methyl iodide) to their fields.

Last month the Natural Resources Defence Council honored the winners of 2011 Growing Green Awards, which recognizes sustainable food pioneers from across the U.S.  Jim Cochran was one of the winners out of 270 nominees.

Hopefully more CA growers will follow in his footsteps now that they know it can be profitable as well as all around better for our future!

Next time you see organic strawberries on sale, know that paying the extra dollar or so not only ensures your good health, but supports a system that promises a much sweeter fruit as well!
