Produce Place featured in City Paper


The City Paper quoted Produce Place (4000 Murphy Road) owner Barry Burnette in yesterday's issue in a story regarding organic produce. The Produce Place works hard to ensure that the products it carries are organic or are accurately labeled otherwise:
Barry Burnette, owner of Produce Place, said he must be meticulous about labeling. Some of his produce, for example, is grown at a Kentucky-based Amish farm that has used organic growing techniques for centuries. But the farm has not undertaken the costly and time-consuming process of obtaining USDA certification, so Burnette must label their goods “Pesticide-Free” rather than “Organic.”
The focus of the story is on the increasing popularity of organic produce and the risk that not all food labeled organic lives up to that standard. You won't have to worry about that at The Produce Place.
