We are committed to supporting small family Farmers & Makers who are caretakers of the earth. We are champions of the noble craft of farming. How things are grown matters and where things come from makes a difference. We believe in fresh, sustainable, homegrown and handcrafted foods, made with love in the USA.
"With every dollar you spend on XO from USA you directly support a family farmer in the USA."
We believe in green-commerce and we seek out the best farmers in the USA who use organic, sustainable farming practices. We use minimal, recycled packaging and we encourage everyone to reduce, reuse and recycle.
We maintain a small carbon footprint by shipping directly from farmers to your door. No middleman, no warehousing, no shipping (or flying) produce from Mexico, China or India. We are all about homegrown and handmade in the USA.
DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that half of the fruit, vegetables and flowers sold in the U.S.A. are imported from as far away as China, Ecuador and Mexico? That is an amazing statistic!
Why contribute to the waste of energy involved flying and trucking produce from countries (with little or no regulations) around the world when local farmers in the USA grow wonderful things right in your own backyard?
Commercial growers typically use large quantities of pesticides (many of which have been banned in the USA) which are toxic for the earth and for the workers who are exposed to them.
Organic produce and flowers grown by USA farmers are not only fresher than those grown in faraway production facilities, they are healthier for you and your family and they are healthier for the planet!
