MONOCULTURES
Monoculture is the process of planting a single species or crop on land acreage, usually for the purpose of large-scale production and marketing. Monocultures go against the natural diversity found in an ecosystem, deplete the soil, make crops more susceptible to pests and diseases, and require harmful fertilizers and chemicals, some of which may be harmful.

ENVIRONMENT FACT
WASTE LAGOONS
Dairy and pasturized cows raised in industrial factory farms throughout the US produce more than two billion pounds of manure a year. This manure is then stored in waste lagoons which results in polluting the environment.

ENVIRONMENT FACT
LOCALLY SOURCED FOOD
There are many ways to define "local foods". For some it means food grown and raised in your state or region. Some define it as food found within 100 miles or a day's drive. The USDA suggest 400 miles from the source of production makes a food locally produced, but really it depends on the climate and season, when it's possible to purchase the food grown close to your home, and when it has to be shipped to reach you. Chipotle "local produce" is grown on farms within 350 miles of the restaurant.

ANIMAL FACT
ORGANIC MEAT
The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) does state that organic meat must come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. But organic meat or dairy products can often be produced on large factory farms where the animals can spend their entire life in confinement.
Many people see organic food as natural, and in many ways this is true. But we've found that in some cases organic methods do not go far enough. That's why we are careful in selecting the farms we work with and deciding when working with an organic producer is appropriate for our needs.

ANIMAL FACT
ANIMAL FEED
Industrialized farms use animal feeds that often contain antibiotics, growth promotants, animal by-products, and a variety of other ingredients that may be harmful to an animal's health. Chipotle believes that farm animals should be fed a diet substantially similar to what they would eat naturally.

ENVIRONMENT FACT
SUSTAINABLE FARMING
This method of farming uses techniques such as crop rotation, soil conservation, natural fertilization and polyculture planting. In livestock production, they use pasture-based systems, feed animals what their bodies are designed to digest, and treat their animals humanely. Sustainable farms produce foods that are tastier and more nutritious than foods produced on factory farms, while also preserving the long-term health of our environment.
