This Independence Day, Celebrate Family Farms

Posted on : July 2nd, 2020

Family farms are so important! In fact, according to the National Institute of Food and Agriculture of the USDA, more than 90% of farms in the U.S. are classified as small family farms. That’s a lot of family love grown into our food supply.

But due to factors that include climate change, giant agribusiness and family members opting for more “glamorous” work, family farms face challenges that affect not only families like ours at Maisie Jane’s, but also our nation’s economy, ecology and overall wellbeing. Yikes!

Luckily, at Maisie Jane’s California Sunshine Products, Inc., a proud fourth-generation family-owned and operated farming business, we’re going strong. So this Independence Day, we thought we’d celebrate small family farms with…

The Small Family Farm Declaration of Independence!

We believe (actually, we know) that:

  • Everyone we work with has a right to earn a good living.
  • Everyone has a right to healthy, naturally produced food.
  • Everyone has a right to know where their food comes from.
  • Everyone we serve has the right to friendly customer relations and satisfaction.

From earth-friendly and organic orchard farming methods that save water and save bees, to selling only non-GMO, non-irradiated, preservative-free ingredients, we’re committed to the health of our local and national economy, to the land where we grow our California almonds and source other natural products, to the earth’s ecology…and of course, to you!

Won’t you join us in the celebration with some delicious, nutritious and award-winning products? Try our one-ingredient Nut Butters, Natural Nuts, Organic Products, chocolate treats or unique flavored nut products. Send a festive seasonal gift to a loved one, friend or colleague; with summer and dining al fresco well underway, The Grill Master basket is perfect for the BBQ enthusiast in your life.

And if you’re passing through our hometown of Chico, California do visit our delightful Country Store Gift Shop. We’d love to get to know you better.

Happy Independence Day from our family to yours!
