Organic Popcorn, Heirloom
Organic Popcorn that is Truly GMO-free
This open pollinated organic popcorn is grown on a ridge shielded by trees and protected from cross-contamination from any genetically modified corn crops, far exceeding current USDA organic standards for buffer zones. Tropical Traditions founder Brian Shilhavy has personally visited the farms where this organic popcorn was grown. Our farmers tell us that the deer in the area will bypass GMO corn fields in the area and travel great distances to get to this organic popcorn. Our family farmers save their own seed which is replanted each year. This organic heirloom popcorn is hand picked and shelled on small family farms in western Wisconsin. This is truly an heirloom quality popcorn grown with great care from high quality organic seed. The organic popcorn is shipped to you directly from the farm.
Organic Popcorn Grown on Small Family farms Practicing Traditional Farming Skills
Our organic heirloom popcorn is not grown in mono-crop fields. If you have ever driven through the Midwest section of the US, you have probably seen the rows and rows of nothing but corn. This organic heirloom popcorn is grown on bio-diverse farms that include other crops, along with farm animals that graze the fields, or pastured chickens that provide our soy-free eggs. Since this is an organic heirloom popcorn, some popcorn is saved during each harvest as seed stock for next year's planting.
The area where this organic heirloom popcorn is grown is known as the "driftless" area of Wisconsin. It is called the "driftless" area because glaciers drifted around this area during the glacial period. As a result, this is a unique area consisting of rolling hills and valleys that the early settlers of Wisconsin recognized as having rich soil for grass and crops. The long harsh winters allow for the natural death of organic plant life that returns nutrient rich organic matter to the soil each year. This is the same area where our pastured chickens and turkeys, grass-fed beef, and grass-fed lamb, originates from. We doubt that you will find a finer organic popcorn anywhere!
