    I stopped buying greens in bags when all the brouhaha started a few years ago & won't go near Horizon milk (if they sell it at Walmart you know something is very wrong).

    I wonder how Whole Foods is going to get around this one since they have almost a whole chiller dedicated to EB Farms packaged greens. Good opening for a real organic greens company to step in.

      Here's the article from Edible Monterey Bay right here in Earthbound's backyard with some perspective on the change in ownership.

        Yeah. No.

        Don't buy it. As Wenonah Hauter said recently when I saw her, so called organic farms on this scale are scarcely any better than commercially grown produce.

        And it would be nice and add to their professionalism if EMB would date their articles.
