September 8, 2010 — Standard Process Inc. is proud to announce the release of “Quality From Seed to Supplement,” a new book that presents the natural beauty of sustainable organic farming. With 50 pages of color photography, this book brings the uniqueness and purity of Standard Process’ 420 acres of organic farmland to life.
From the rich organic soil to the setting sun over fields of whole food goodness, “Quality From Seed to Supplement” lets readers experience the Standard Process Farm, located in Palmyra, Wis. It is on the Standard Process Farm that the manufacturer of whole food supplements begins to fulfill its mission to improve the quality of life by providing the safest, most effective, highest quality nutritional whole food supplements.
Recognizing that the advantages of sustainable organic agriculture goes beyond human health, to the health of the planet and all its communities, Standard Process will donate $10 for every book sold to an organization that supports organic farming and farmers.
“To farm organically is neither the easy way nor the cheap way to farm. You can never let your guard down and are constantly staying in touch with every field, soil conditions, and the ever-changing growth of crops,” says Christine Mason, manager of the Standard Process Farm. “That said, I cannot express with words how rewarding it is to be so involved in the cycle of life on the Standard Process Farm. To partner with the land, cultivate, and care for it so that it gives you all it has, is a truly spiritual experience for me.”
