Stellar's Organic Policy

It is our goal to serve the highest quality best tasting products from our small scale local farmers and artisans with organic being our first choice. Since organic certification is not a sure sign that a product is grown sustainable and the absence of organic certification, due to the high cost, does not indicate organic techniques are not being practiced, our priority is to procure high quality extraordinary tastes that are made locally from farmers and artisans that take pride in their work and always support organic, certified or not, whenever possible.
