We have watched the food movement grow from the inception of the organic USDA certification program in 2002 to our own certification in 2007, establishing Barr as the only certified organic venue in the nation. We embrace sustainability and look forward to how such efforts can have a profound impact on climate change, our daily lives, and our health.
