the organic vs. local debate

The Finger Lakes Fruit Bowl includes organic and non-organic fruit. We source excellent quality local fruit from family farms that we think are doing a good job growing fruit in our challenging climate! We try and source as much organic fruit as possible (especially our strawberries & apples) but some of our partner farms use IPM (integrated pest management) so they may resort to pesticides when necessary.


If you have any questions or specific concerns please be in touch!
