Organic Farming


When we first started growing organically over 20 years ago, it was on a small ranch in Fort Ord, California. The land was transitioned from a military base - a tank driving practice area - into a thriving organic farm. That first ranch was just 320 acres and, now today, we have approximately 5,000 acres of certified organic land in California, Arizona, and Mexico, with
more progression every year. Organic farming is an vital component of Pacific International Marketing.  

PPO CauliflowerAt Pacific, we have made a company commitment not just to organic farming, but to the wholesome, sustainable agriculture system that preserves and improves our precious natural resources, like air, soil and water, as well as conserves the harmony of our fragile ecosystem. Our organic farming practices enhance the biodiversity, increase soil fertility, and preserve surface as well as ground water.

 

Our dedication to organic farming starts in the field; we select our seed from only the most experienced growers to offer those varieties that meet today's strict standards. Our farmers are in the field daily to ensure our crops are harvested at the peak of perfection and are handled and packed properly.  We then utilize our own advanced cooling equipment and loading techniques to ensure the integrity of the produce.
