The most popular breakfast juice in America is of course, organic orange juice. Packed with Vitamin C, it is a healthy choice no matter what time of day you drink it. However, when it comes to the actual process of how organic orange juice is produced most people have no idea about what it really takes to make organic orange juice from seed to shelf.

In 1999, Matt McLean ventured into the organic juice business 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. His company, Uncle Matt’s Organics is the leading producer of premium certified organic citrus from Florida.

Due to the desire to produce locally grown organic foods, many people are opting to start their own organic farm. To have an organic citrus farm, you really need to have a great deal of knowledge about citrus as well as an understanding of how to operate a business. Especially in the organic industry, there are a lot of things to learn before taking the plunge.

In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Matt McClean, CEO and Founder of Uncle Matt’s Organics to talk about operating an organic citrus farm. Stay tuned!
