Thanks for touching base with me on that. Actually, I havent used any of the millet yet because the package says on it natural not organic. What does that mean? Everything is natural, even preservatives and pesticides. Its all from nature.

Is it organic and why doesnt the package say so?

 Thanks, Patti

Dear Patti 

The millet is indeed organic. But it is grown in France and as such does not have the USDA Organic seal. 

We have spoke to Higgins about this and they are working to get the seal but have been informed it will take a year before it comes through. 

We only found out there about the difference between organic grown out of the country and the organic grown in the US and gets the seal recently. 

There is really no difference, but the government wants to be involved and as such the Higgins company is removing the Organically Grown wording until the seal is obtained.

 We also have to change our listing description as well until then.

 It is fine organic millet that your birds will enjoy. Do not fear. We have sold this exact millet for over 10 years with no problems.

Thank you for writing and asking.
