Much of what we source is organic.  All of our sweeteners, dried fruit, oils, proteins (legumes, tempeh and tofu) and milks plus much more are organic.  In addition, all of our spices for both sweet and savory are organic and fair trade and all of the produce we use is organic and local whenever possible. All other ingredients are as organic as they can be although at times we might source locally grown or sustainable choices instead. All of our ingredients are sourced with the highest quality in mind.
