This website is for companies searching for exceptionally high quality cereal grass and alfalfa for use in their own products. With nearly 100 years of experience, we seek to partner with companies who share our commitment to 100% Certified Organic Farming, 100% Non-GMO Project Verification and sustainable practices such as our not being a part of the depletion and contamination of the Ogallala Aquifer.
The minimum order for any of our ingredients is 20 kg. If you are a consumer and seek smaller quantities in bottles of finished product, you can locate them here.
We are the only grower of cereal grass and alfalfa that uses an 8-Step Process. We carefully follow the growing, harvesting and storage standards established by Charles Schnabel and other scientists who discovered the nutrient-density of cereal grasses and alfalfa.
Pines/Cerophyl is proud of our long association with many quality brands. Until the mid-1990’s, Pines/Cerophyl was the only supplier of cereal grass to the ingredient market.
Because we grow in a region with plenty of rainfall, we do not and have not ever irrigated any of our fields. Further, we seek to protect the Ogallala Aquifer that is located in the dry Western part of our State. This once massive underground aquifer is now contaminated with farm chemicals and is severely depleted. Irresponsible farming practices have wasted that precious resource by growing crops that are not appropriate for a dry region like that.
Worse, no one can recharge the Ogallala. It took tens of thousands of years to accumulate that water. Wasteful farming methods have depleted and poisoned it. In less than 100 years, farmers in that region have nearly pumped the Ogallala dry. They use it to grow pesticide-based alfalfa and other poison-based crops as well as “organic” greens for the natural foods market. Even if the abuse stopped immediately, it would require thousands of years to replenish the water stolen from future generations. We are proud to be located in the area of Kansas where Dr. Schnabel and other scientists conducted their research on cereal grass and alfalfa. They choose our location because the soils, climate and ample rainfall that are perfect and appropriate for those kinds of crops
