How We Grow
Hebda’s Family Produce utilizes sustainable practices and
works consistently to maintain our products as chemically free as possible. We are
striving to become more efficient, improve our food supply and also improve the soil for
our children and generations to come. Our end goal is to provide nutrient full
produce that helps achieve long lasting, great tasting products!
The Nutrient program at Hebda’s Produce includes the
techniques needed to balance mineralization and achieve nutrient dense, high sugar
food. We can achieve this by using products from Soil Works to help keep our soil
nutrient full while we measure our results in Brix.

Measuring our Results
Brix is a measurement of the sugar level in plant extracts as
created through photosynthesis. This measurement has shown a direct correlation
between Brix levels and plant health.
At Hebda’s we pride ourselves in producing high-level Brix
produce. Oftentimes our produce is 2 times the industry standard! This
high-level Brix measurement means that our nutrient dense foods have high levels of sugar,
vitamins, carbohydrates, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes. High Brix produce also
has a robust taste and is naturally insect and disease resistant. That means that
mold, mildew, plant diseases and insects cannot take hold of healthy plants!
What it means for the consumer is that a high Brix
measurement can have a great impact on improving health and nutrition while at the same
time helping the end products last twice as long as low-level Brix.
