Willow Creek Farms via Veritable Vegetable
Willow Creek Farms is ideally located in northwestern California along the Trinity River. We farm about 20 acres of row crops and a few acres of fruit trees. We grow a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, many of which are heirlooms. We practice crop rotation and other organic farming methods to maximize the potential of the farm while keeping land stewardship as the top priority.
Veritable Vegetable: A Unique Organic Distributor
As an organic produce distributor with over 40 years of experience, Veritable Vegetable has benefited from the creativity and hard work of our employees, and the deep relationships we’ve formed with our growers. We’re proud of our reputation for quality and integrity. As a mission–driven company, we make every business decision based on a set of core values. Because we believe in supporting our growers, we maintain visibility for each of the 200+ farm labels we carry and communicate the distance each grower is from our warehouse in San Francisco.
Our environmental initiatives are vast: not only do we transport our organic produce via an award winning, environmentally sustainable green fleet of trucks and trailers; we also divert 99% of our waste stream through a vigorous waste management program and the use of reusable pallets, crates and fabric wraps. Additionally, our solar array generates 70% of our electricity needs.
We actively support our community by creating unique partnerships with local and national organizations, donating time, produce, and resources to sustainability efforts, and by weighing in on policy initiatives that impact sustainable food systems. Veritable Vegetable is a woman-owned, certified B Corporation, using the power of business to solve social and environmental challenges.
