About Us / Earthbound Farm History: When Drew and Myra Goodman came to California’s Carmel Valley in 1984, they were determined young transplants from Manhattan, drawn to the natural beauty and richness of the land. Even before they turned over their first shovels full of soil, they believed strongly in doing the right thing.\n\nThey settled on a 2.5-acre raspberry farm and decided that doing the right thing meant committing to farming this spectacular land organically, producing food they would want to eat themselves and would feel good about serving their families, friends, and neighbors. Their labor of love became Earthbound Farm.\n\nIt wasn’t long before Earthbound Farm was doing a lot of the right things. Undaunted by those who said it couldn’t be done, in 1986 we became the first company to successfully launch prewashed, packaged salad for retail sale. When we introduced our mixed baby greens or “spring mix” to restaurants and supermarket produce aisles, we started a salad revolution. Today, gourmet salad greens and packaged salads have become staples of grocery baskets everywhere.\n\nWe’ve been farming for 25 years now, and we’ve become the world’s largest grower of organic produce. But our roots remain strong: our founders still guide the company, and our original commitment to farming organically has never wavered. We’re dedicated to bringing the benefits of organic food — fresh, flavorful, and healthy — to as many people as possible.\n\nAt Earthbound Farm, our unwavering commitment to organic farming comes from our concern for health. Farming organically helps keep our consumers and our environment healthy by avoiding the use of harmful chemicals. Organic farming focuses on building the fertility of the soil with natural materials, resulting in rich, vital field ecosystems that produce fruits and vegetables as pure and healthy as they were intended to be.\n\nOur farm-fresh organic salads, fruits, and vegetables are chosen by millions of people every day in supermarkets across North America and beyond — we’re delighted to be sharing our passion with you in every delicious bite of Earthbound Farm organic produce.
