The Bragg Vision for the future is exciting! Continuing on the Bragg Legacy and Crusade, Bragg Live Food Products is developing a one hundred twenty acre organic farm on the outskirts of Santa Barbara, California. The property is in the process of being modeled into an incredible Organic Teaching Farm & Center with facilities to both educate and instruct in the values of growing and eating organics, called the Bragg Health Institute. The Bragg Health Institute was inspired in part by an educational program called "Bring a Farmer to School", in which Dr. Patricia Bragg, the Director of Health Science: Dr. John Westerdahl and Bragg's Organic
Farmers were invited to speak to children at the local elementary schools. The focus of the education outreach is to teach children about the importance of eating more organic fruits & vegetables and how organic farming plays an important role in environmentally - friendly, health plant foods. Last year the Bragg Health Institute donated thousands of
organic apples to the local school districts which were grown on the Bragg Organic Farm.
