                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
                420-acre certified organic farm. The farm, located
                just a mile down the road from company
                headquarters in Palymra, Wisconsin, harvests
                6.5 million pounds of vegetables every year. Those
                raw plant materials make up more than 60 percent
                of the ingredients used in our supplements.
