Earthbound Farm, a unit of Danone North America, is one of North America’s heritage organic brands and one of the largest growers of organic produce. Founded in 1984 on 2½-acres in Carmel Valley, California by Drew & Myra Goodman, Earthbound Farm grew from that small local farm to become one of the first large scale organic vegetable farms by partnering with third-generation conventional farmers who converted land and learned to farm organically while bringing efficient farming practices to organic farming. It is a company built on the social, economic, and environmental benefits of organic.

Fulfilling its mission to cultivate a healthier world through organic food and farming, Earthbound Farm been a catalyst for positive change by converting thousands of acres from conventional chemical farming to organic farming practices that protect the air, water and food supply; by making organic produce more affordable and accessible in supermarkets across North America; and by making its clamshell packages from 100% Post-Consumer Recycled PET (PCR PET). By making its packages from PCR PET, Earthbound Farm creates a market for recycled beverage bottles, keeping about 40 million pounds of plastic out of landfills every year.

Earthbound Farm is a subsidiary of Danone North America, also a Certified B Corp. To learn more about Danone North America's B Corp Certification, please visit their B Impact Report by searching them in the B Corp Directory bar below.
