Orsi Organic Produce is located north of Auke Bay near Juneau, Alaska. Our produce is grown locally for select markets using sustainable organic practices under the Certified Naturally Grown program.  We do not employ the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, or use any genetically modified crop varieties.

Our farm promotes sustainable agricultural practices from soil to market!

Soil inputs are usually locally collected or sourced as available

Cover cropping, mulching, & crop rotations are done to add nitrogen & tilth to the soil

Growing areas have ground/bed coverings to prevent soil erosion and nutrient runoff

• Single use plastics are typically not used on the farm or in packaging

Crops are delivered in compostable BioBags, paper bags/shells, or directly to storefront bins

•  Vegetative waste is composted on site or fed to our chickens

•  Crops are grown/sold within a 15 mi radius of the farm: none sold outside of Juneau

We are a Certified Naturally Grown farm producing naturally grown food for local markets. The CNG mission helps promote sustainable agriculture through peer-review certification, grassroots networking, and advocacy. Consumers may also view online CNG farmer information and declared growing practices.

We also participate in the Alaska Grown Program
