               High-Quality Ingredients

               As in any recipe, the quality of ingredients affects
               the quality of the final product. Manufacturers
               who grow their own ingredients have control
               over them, which is why Standard Process owns a
               623-acre certified organic farm. The farm, located
               just a mile down the road from company
               headquarters in Palymra, Wisconsin, harvests
               6.7 million pounds of vegetables every year. More
               than 80 percent of the raw plant ingredients used
               in our products are grown on our farm.
