Tierra Farm is a certified-organic manufacturer and distributor of nuts and dried fruits, located 20 miles south of Albany, New York. Their customers consist mainly of cooperatives and independently owned grocery stores which value working with an employee-owned, environmentally conscious company that manufactures its own products. Tierra Farm handles only certified-organic products which are grown without synthetic pesticides, genetically modified organisms, or chemical fertilizers. This sustains biodiversity, conserves fresh water, and enhances the soil. They generate over 70% of their electricity from solar panels and recycle over 60% of the waste. Their boxes are made from recycled cardboard and their deli cup containers are made from over 50% recycled material—both are recyclable after use. Tierra Farm is continuously looking for better ways to protect the planet. Their core value is to cultivate strong relationships with the best organic farmers in the world. Every year, they purchase an increasing amount of their nuts, seeds, and dried fruit directly from the farms, some of which they have worked with for over two decades.
