Loss of life and home are always the worst part of natural disasters. Crops and wildlife suffer too, and you’ll soon notice the effects, not just in terms of the absence of things, but in a change in quality. Some of the first products we’ve seen with this impact are California and Caribbean produce. Drought, heat, smoke, lack of transportation, flooding, and contamination all contribute to decreased supply and increased cost. Our products are still certified organic, so you know they’re still safe, but you may notice they just don’t look like themselves lately. Be patient – they’re doing their best.
