Eden believes in local first whenever it makes sense, and most ingredients are grown from a few miles to a few hundred miles of Eden's Michigan headquarters. These include organic soybeans, dry beans, cabbage, spelt, apples, tart cherries, strawberries, pastry wheat, and tomatoes. Other North American family farm organically grown Eden foods include grains from the Midwest and Western high plains, almonds and brown rice from California, flax seeds from Saskatchewan, sesame from Texas, dulse from New Brunswick; and much more.
Note: consumers may wonder why Eden Foods products do not carry the green "USDA Organic" seal. Eden Foods explains: "Though all EDEN organic food is grown, handled, processed, and certified in a way that meets and exceeds the requirements for using the 'USDA Organic' seal, Eden chooses not to use this seal on its food labels. In short this seal does not approach Eden's standards for organic, in practice or in spirit."
