GEM Pack Packs a Punch!
With an eye on the future, an ace coalition of California farmers known as GEM Pack Berries long ago embraced the organic farming practices standardized in the late 1980s. By 2015, they were looking to find even more sustainable, soil-friendly methods. They soon learned of an Australian bioscience company conducting innovative research on a promising idea: developing a special kind of good bacteria as a substitute to both artificial and heavy metal-based pesticides.
GEM Pack understood that if these seemingly impossible trials were successful, the results could solve a long list of health, agricultural, sustainability, and environmental issues. GEM Pack allocated a sizable plot of farming land in Southern California so these bioscientists could conduct multi-year research on the cultivation of strawberries- and they have been met with astounding results! Earthmade strawberries, grown with ZERO chemicals, have proven to yield the same or higher than standard conventional and organic strawberries. And they are equally delicious!
Recently, GEM Pack Berries partnered with Walmart to showcase the first Earthmade strawberries, grown using an innovative cultivation method that eliminates the need for pesticides and soil-damaging heavy metals.
