Certified Organic Tree Grower Joins Bower & Branch Network
Bower & Branch recently announced the addition of Raemelton Farm in Frederick County, Maryland, to the grower network. Raemelton Farm is reportedly the first and only USDA Certified Organic Tree Grower in the industry.
Don Eaton, founder and CEO of EdenGrene, dba Bower & Branch, says he believes strongly that certified organic production will play an important role in the future of the green industry.
“Growers must step away and study closely their individual impact on local environments, as well as the impact on other environments where our plants are sold and planted,” said Eaton. “How we grow, what we grow, what inputs are used and how we package will all be, and should be, challenged by each of us in the coming years. Bower & Branch is supporting our network growers today by providing product value positions, sales channels and consumer accessibility for environmentally beneficial plants.
“Programs like Audubon’s Plants for Birds, being introduced nationally through Bower & Branch, will benefit greatly from courageous and forward-thinking growers and retailers who are committed to being pioneers and leaders in the new green industry being defined online and in the landscape.”
“We’re thrilled to move our trees through an entirely new sales channel. Giving retail consumers direct access to our diverse pallet of sustainably grown plants is great for everybody,” said Steve Black, owner and operator of Raemelton Farm, speaking on the benefits of joining Bower & Branch.
“By offering a diverse set of ornamental, fruit, and native trees through Bower & Branch, we can help consumers pick the tree they really want, not just what’s available in their local area. Organic agriculture is growing at a fantastic rate—especially non-food organic. Being able to offer our USDA Certified Organic trees directly to consumers who prefer to shop organic is a huge step forward,” states Black.
Through 2020 and 2021, Bower & Branch will make available the widest range of SKU’s online to landscapers and consumers all over the country. With the partnership with Ramelton, USDA organic trees will be available exclusively on www.bowerandbranch.com beginning Fall 2020.
