Because fruits and veggies are such a staple, it's easy to forget that behind each tomato, pineapple and grape is a person, a farmer or worker with a family and community. (..)

For many years Wholesum Harvest had two Fair Trade Certified farms in Mexico.  In late 2016 Wholesum received certification for a third operation in Amado, Arizona. The Amado farm is the first produce grower in the U.S. to earn Fair Trade certification, extending the benefits of Fair Trade to hundreds of farmworkers and their families.
