About Edible Garden

A Commitment To Quality

“Simply Local…Simply Fresh™” isn’t just a tagline, it’s our mission. Four words that encompass a simple, honest promise to our customers. We reinforce this promise with products cultivated using the safest standards and most energy efficient technologies available. Our commitment to quality helps ensure Edible Garden will become an integral part of your family’s healthy lifestyle. We encourage all families to spend mealtimes together, while enjoying natural produce grown just a short distance away.

Why Dutch Hydroponics?
Our process utilizes time-tested, classic Dutch hydroponic farming methods to provide our customers with high quality products free from any pesticides, herbicides, residues or contaminants. Our clean, controlled, indoor environment ensures your Edible Garden produce will always meet our unwavering standard of quality and food integrity, from planting to delivery. Holland is the world leader in hydroponic farming. In the early days of hydroponics, the Dutch recognized that traditional farming practices and the environmental factors that accompanied them were unpredictable. This often resulted in uncontrollable crop failure. As populations grew, newer and more reliable farming solutions were needed. The Dutch sought to meld technology with the wisdom of Mother Nature in order to grow food and flowers in an indoor, controlled environment. The resulting yields turned the Dutch into world-renowned farmers whose flowers and produce are highly sought after, worldwide. Edible Garden now brings the wisdom of Dutch hydroponic technology to your local community through our line of nutritious and delicious “living” produce.
Farming for Future Generations
Sustainable farming is our passion. The global population is increasing exponentially, placing an enormous burden on our environment as we attempt to produce enough food for everyone. Modern agriculture has introduced genetically modified organisms and a whole host of chemicals in an effort to “solve” food scarcity. Unfortunately, these practices have caused irreparable damage to our arable land and water supply. These unsustainable farming practices are addressing today’s problems by turning a blind eye to the serious repercussions they will leave for future generations. The time to change is now, before it’s too late!
Serving Local Communities

One of the most devastating effects of America’s broken food system is the lack of availability of healthful foods to the underserved in our communities. Edible Garden is attempting to remedy this by giving back to our local communities. We support food pantries near our farms by stocking their shelves with our fresh, healthy, “living” produce. This ensures that our community members, including the 16 million children who face food scarcity on a daily basis, will not go without healthy options to put on their plates. As the Edible Garden brand grows, we are able to give more to each local community that we become a part of. When you support Edible Garden you support not only your local economy, but your local community as a whole.

The Future Is Bright!
Edible Garden started as one small family farm with a bright idea. We have since expanded our “living produce” operation to six farms throughout Florida, Indiana, and New Jersey. We are proud of the success we’ve had in rolling out sustainable, locally-grown food to grocers near you. But we don’t want to stop there! We are looking for farmers all across the United States who would be interested in joining us on our mission.

                    USDA Certified Organic
Organic certification verifies that your farm or handling facility complies with the USDA organic regulations. This certification allows you to sell, label, and represent your products as organic. Farms all over the world may be certified to the USDA organic standards. Most farms and businesses that grow, handle, or process organic products must be certified. Certification allows you to call your product “organic” and to use the USDA seal.
The Non-GMO Project
The retailers who started the Non-GMO Project were motivated by a simple idea. They believed that consumers in North America should have access to clearly-labeled non-GMO food and products, now and in the future. That conviction continues to guide the Non-GMO Project, as North America’s only independent verification for products made according to best practices for GMO avoidance.
What does “Non-GMO Project Verified seal” mean?
The verification seal indicates that the product bearing the seal has gone through our verification process. Our verification is an assurance that a product has been produced according to consensus-based best practices for GMO avoidance.
GFSI Certification
The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) is an industry-driven initiative providing thought leadership and guidance on food safety management systems necessary for safety along the supply chain. This work is accomplished through collaboration between the world’s leading food safety experts from retail, manufacturing and food service companies, as well as international organizations, governments, academia and service providers to the global food industry. They meet together at technical working group and stakeholder meetings, conferences and regional events to share knowledge and promote a harmonized approach to managing food safety across the industry. GFSI is facilitated by The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF), a global, parity-based industry network, driven by its members.
Kosher Certification
This certification verifies that the ingredients, production process, and/or food-service process complies with the standards of kashrut (Jewish dietary law) as stipulated in the Shulchan Arukh, the benchmark of religious Jewish law. The certification agency employs mashgichim (rabbinic field representatives) to make periodic site visits and oversee the food-production or food-service process in order to verify ongoing compliance. Each agency has its own trademarked symbol that it allows manufacturers and food-service providers to display on their products or in-store certificates; use of this symbol can be revoked for non-compliance.
Produce Traceability Initiative
The Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) implements case-level electronic traceability in the produce industry. PTI is designed to help the industry maximize the effectiveness of current trace back procedures, while developing a standardized industry approach to enhance the speed and efficiency of traceability systems for the future.
