Food Safety


We hang our hat on the flavor and quality of our fruit, but in reality, providing fruit that is safe to eat is our number one priority. A safe, secure working environment for our family of employees and ensuring the long-term viability of our farmland follow close behind.

Family Tree Farms has fully integrated its food safety, worker safety, and sustainability practices under one comprehensive program. Guardian Harvest is a third-party, on-site entity charged with ensuring that we meet or exceed all established regulations and guidelines in the following areas:

  • Food Safety and Security
  • GAPs (Good Agricultural Practices)
  • GMPs (Good Manufacturing Practices)
  • Worker health and safety
  • Sustainable farming practices

Third party monitoring on site every day ensures that we operate in accordance with these guidelines every day – not only to pass an audit.
