Protected Harvest is an eco-label with the stated mission of helping farmers meet environmental standards that yield high quality products and preserve healthy land for future generations.
The Protected Harvest parent company, SureHarvest, provides technical support and collaborates with qualified organizations to develop region– and crop– specific verifiable environmental performance standards, which are peer reviewed before being presented to the Protected Harvest Advisory Board for adoption.
Each Protected Harvest production standard is written to reflect the unique growing requirements and environmental considerations of the crop and the specific bioregion in which it is grown. A “typical” standard is divided into four major sections: whole farm management, soil and water management, and air quality management.
