PROSPECT, ME – (Sept 20, 2022) Prospect Farms, a leading CPG wellness platform offering benefit-focused botanical products for people and their pets, announced today that it has attained USDA Organic Certification.
Prospect Farms is excited to announce that the USDA has certified its Farming Operations, furthering its commitment to transparency and quality industry standards. This achievement now makes Prospect Farms the largest USDA Organic Hemp Farm in Maine supporting the Spa, Hospitality and Pet Wellness industry. The organic certification ensures that Hemp grown at Prospect Farms adheres to strict organic standards to further solidify our commitment to clean, all-natural products.
“It has always been our belief that the Prospect Farms weathervane and logo is our "Seal of Quality, our “Symbol of Trust” and, most importantly, our promise that all of our products are organically-grown & thoughtfully manufactured on our farm in Maine,” says Thomas Arters, Prospect Farms Founder. “When you see the Prospect Farms logo, we want consumers to have full trust and confidence that they are purchasing the highest quality, all-natural, single source product on the market. Having the Prospect Farms logo now affiliated with the USDA Certified Organic logo is a major milestone in reinforcing that commitment to quality and advancing our promise to the health & wellness industry.”
In order to achieve USDA Organic Certification and be in full compliance with federal regulations for certified organic practices hemp must be grown without synthetic pesticides or herbicides. Prospect Farms has aligned with the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) to ensure all inputs used on its farm meets this heightened level of quality in support of its soil and crop fertility plans including conservation and biodiversity practices. For soil integrity Prospect Farms implements regenerative practices and field rotation plans to build and maintain healthy soils rich in organic matter. Prospect Farms’ Organic Farm Plan is required to maintain certified organic practices and documentation over a three-year transition period with on-farm inspections by a USDA accredited organic certification agency before being formally approved as 'USDA Certified Organic.'
Tom Davis, Prospect Farms Head of Farming added - “We fundamentally believe that quality wellness products start from the ground up with everything from the seeds to the nutrient rich soil contributing to our ability to produce what we believe to be the highest quality products in the wellness industry. It is because of this deep and unwavering commitment to quality that we have taken the steps to earn USDA Organic Certification for our farming operations. Proudly standing behind the USDA Organic Certification is one more reason consumers can trust that Prospect Farms is one of the highest quality hemp products in the market.”
