The Sustainable Picture.

Doing our part in creating a Sustainable Future.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.

Our Sustainable Mission Statement

At George Chiala Farms, sustainability means honoring and respecting our Planet and our People. As a family business, it is an integral part of who we are and how we carry out our varied roles and responsibilities.

This is our Sustainable promise: As stewards of the land, we aim to preserve soil fertility (keeping it biologically active for the next generation), minimize chemical inputs, and conserve water. As active members of our local community, we source locally whenever possible, producing the highest quality products using the least amount of natural resources. And, as people dedicated to continually learning how to do things better, we invest in cutting-edge energy and water saving technologies that will allow us to lower greenhouse gas emissions and lighten our dependence upon precious natural resources.

It is with great privilege and great responsibility that we approach these aforementioned goals. Our family, alongside our sustainability team, works in earnest to ensure they are met in quantifiable ways so that we can continue to make the highest quality culinary ingredients in a way that is not only good for business, but good for our community and good for our planet, too. Our children are counting on us.
