Company Description

Pines is the original supplier of cereal grass and alfalfa to the ingredient market. We are the only grower to follow the standards established in 1937 by the scientist, Charles Schnabel, who various authors call, "the father of wheatgrass." We grow our cereal grasses, alfalfa and kale on many of the same fields he used during his lifetime of research. We also still operate one of his laboratories. Pines is composed of 100% organic family farmers, not dual farmers. In other words, we are not chemical farmers with an "organic sideline." We grow our crops with natural rainfall, never irrigation, and thus do not contribute to the depletion and contamination of the Ogallala Aquifer. That once-pristine resource took tens of thousands of years to accumulate. Now, after less than 100 years of abuse by chemical farmers and dual farmers, it is seriously depleted and poisoned by wasteful practices of growing organic natural food ingredients alongside pesticide-based animal feed and GMO corn for ethanol.
