October marks the celebration of Non-GMO Month, a time to reflect on the importance of food transparency, quality, and making conscious choices about the products we consume. At BOTERNA Vertical Farms, we share a deep commitment to providing our community with the highest quality, nutritious produce. We take pride in using only non-GMO seeds for all our crops, aligning with our values of health, sustainability, and consumer trust.
What are GMOs?
GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory. This genetic engineering process creates combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and virus genes that do not occur naturally or through traditional crossbreeding methods. The aim of GMOs is to enhance specific traits, such as resistance to pests or increased growth rates.
Our Pledge to Non-GMO
At BOTERNA Vertical Farms, we firmly believe that nature knows best. Our dedication to using non-GMO seeds stems from our belief that food should be as close to its natural state as possible. We refuse to compromise on the quality and integrity of our produce by incorporating genetically modified seeds.
Why Non-GMO Matters
Health and Well-being: Non-GMO produce is believed to be better for our health, as it avoids potential risks associated with consuming genetically modified organisms.
Environmental Impact: Choosing non-GMO supports sustainable agriculture and reduces the environmental footprint associated with GMO production.
Preserving Biodiversity: Promoting non-GMO farming helps protect natural biodiversity and traditional, sustainable farming practices.
Trust in Our Sources
We understand that our community values the source and quality of the products they consume. That's why at BOTERNA Vertical Farms, we meticulously select our seeds from registered, reputable sellers. Our dedication to quality extends beyond our growing practices; it begins with sourcing seeds that meet our stringent criteria for non-GMO authenticity.
