Company / What is Organic?

Organic refers to the way agricultural products—food and fiber—are grown and processed. Organic food production is based on a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers. Organic foods are minimally processed without artificial ingredients, preservatives, or irradiation to maintain the integrity of the food.

Organic farming also supports a cleaner environment. Water runoff from conventional farming fills our rivers, lakes and oceans with pesticides and fertilizers. The organic farmer’s elimination of polluting chemicals and nitrogen leaching, in combination with soil building, works to prevent contamination, and protects and conserves water resources.

For both health and conservation reasons, Boulder Ice Cream is in the process of converting its entire grocery line to organic.
