receive special prices on selected items.

“Ten years after the American public demanded that the EPA ban the cancer-causing pesticide Alar,
children are no better protected from pesticides in the nation’s food supply . . ..More than a quarter
million American children ages one through five eat a combination of 20 different pesticides every
day.” (Statistics from the Environmental Working Group) At Bannockburn Farm, we grow without
using any chemicals—no pesticides, no herbicides, no insecticides. Poultry and animals are “free
range” with no hormones or antibiotics added to their food.
