The USDA has a 41-page list of allowed antimicrobials, and our processors use the most natural sprays - organic apple cider vinegar and certified-for-organic citric and lactic acids.

We want an “awesome” processor, one that holds the highest standards, just like we do on the farm. We had given up hope and were working with the best options available. Then… something miraculous happened...
