There’s no question your health is directly related to the quality of the food you eat. The quality of the food, in turn, is dependent on the health of the soil in which it is grown.

Dr. Maya Shetreat-Klein, a pediatric neurologist in New York and an instructor at New York Medical College told The New York Times:

“The organisms in soil have an impact on the health of our food. Part of what makes fruits and vegetables good for us is the phytonutrients in them — the things that make cranberries red or coffee bitter.

Phytonutrients are part of the plant’s immune systems. Organisms in the soil that we might think of as pests actually stimulate plants to make more phytonutrients.”

Many American diets are based on foods grown in mineral-depleted, unhealthy soils. This is certainly the case with genetically engineered (GE) processed foods and meat and dairy products from concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs).

At La Nay Ferme, our main focus is improving the health of our soil. By purchasing our produce, you can ensure that the foods you are eating are plants high in nutrients and safe to eat.
