We support the campaign and its attempts to educate consumers by informing them how products labeled as "natural" can be misleading and false. There are some guarantees that the USDA seal provides to the customer. Learn what it means to be USDA certified organic

Johnny and April grew up in the rich farming communities of Central Pennsylvania. They moved to Pittsburgh after April graduated from Penn State. While living in Pittsburgh, they became involved in the local food movement and began to plot the return to their farming roots.
Johnny spent his teenage years working on an organic farm after school, weekends and during his Summer breaks. Before moving to Pittsburgh, he had a stint working at a French restaurant and trained under the chef and owner. At a young age, he developed a love for food. After moving to Pittsburgh with April, he pursued an education and career in computer science and software engineering. You'll often see him tweet about food, beer and projects, especially those involving the restoration of their early 1900s log cabin.
After moving to Pittsburgh, April pursued a career in social services. She worked for several agencies in and around the Pittsburgh area. At the same time, April continued her education in the areas of herbalism and aromatherapy and incorporates her knowledge into the farm and its products. She started Cloud 9 Aromatherapy in 1997. Don't be surprised to find an aromatherapy salve or herb sachet in one of your weekly CSA shares.
