Uncle Matt’s Organic® is the nation’s original organic juice company, and it’s where we get all the oranges we use for our Vitamin C. The oranges we get from this fourth-generation, family-owned business are in-season, freshly harvested, 100% organic Navel and Hamlin oranges.
Uncle Matt’s Organic® grows their oranges free of synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers, and advocates stewardship of the soil as a means of producing the healthiest, most nutritious, organic crops possible.
The real-life uncle to ten nieces and nephews, Matt McLean ventured into the organic juice business in 1999 with a passion for healthy living as well as a long family history of growing citrus in Florida. Matt’s goal was, and still is, to produce the highest quality juice, using only premium, 100% organically-grown fruit that is free from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.
“For me, organic just made the most sense,“ says Matt. “Less toxins to the environment and less toxic residues on the fruit are ultimately what is best for everybody. It really is the way my grandfather and great-grandfather used to grow citrus.”
Uncle Matt’s philosophy is based on building healthy soils that will yield a healthier tree so it can naturally defend itself against disease. The single factor analysis of today’s Ag world reacts to pests with pesticides, but Uncle Matt’s takes pride in protecting the next generation, believing that less contamination means a safer planet for everyone.
