When you go to the grocery store to purchase your food, do you know where it comes from? Over 95 % of all fruits and vegetables in our local chain grocery stores comes from California, Florida or elsewhere. GROW ALABAMA is in the process of changing this dismal statistic.

To honor our commitments to you, we will supplement when necessary from the closest sustainable sources, until we can grow it ourselves. That's what it's all about - sustainability, not continuing down the path that we are on.
