At Sparta Gourmet, we believe that building a better future means investing in our community and building it together. A commitment to local employment, continued education for both employees and producers, free educational seminars and programming to increase adoption of best practices and improved outcomes as a long-term dedication to the land and its people.
We do not use dangerous chemicals, pesticides or mechanical collection methods and have begun the transition to electric powered tools and machinery, instead nurturing our fields with care and harvesting them by hand to ensure the finest flavor and highest nutritional value possible.
In 2020, we added a 500kw solar panel system to our roof on a net metering basis, providing green power to operate our facilities with all excess generation sent to our local grid.
Partnering with the local community, we have sponsored clean river and ocean initiatives with schools, donated COVID supplies and testing machinery to our local hospital and provided our food products to organizations such as geriatric care facilities and charities.
