We pride ourselves in carrying one of the largest selections of organic produce in the country. Jimbo’s…Naturally! is committed to supporting local organic farmers and organic growing practices.
Organic Certified Organic produce means that the crops are grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides, or herbicides. Certified Organic farms are regularly verified by a recognized, independent third party.
Local Some companies claim that local means something comes from within a 500 mile radius. Jimbo’s definition of local is from within San Diego County. Look for this symbol in our produce department to support your local organic farmer.
Pesticide-Free (or Unsprayed) May be grown with chemical fertilizers, but no pesticides are used beyond the bloom stage (meaning, fruit is unsprayed). Often, growers will provide lab test results verifying that no chemical residues are present on the product. Jimbo’s also uses this label for some produce that growers claim is organically grown, but lacks official certification.
Conventional (or Commercial) Grown with synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides to aid, protect and speed up the growth of crops. Other chemicals are used to reduce labor costs and spoilage.
Transitional Produce from a farm that is on its way to organic certification. When a farm converts from conventional farming practices to organic techniques, it must wait three years before becoming eligible for organic certification.

Meat & Seafood
Jimbo’s offers the highest quality meat and fish because we only sell meat from animals raised humanely without antibiotics and growth hormones. All of our suppliers are thoroughly researched and monitored to assure that all of our meat and fish is free of any artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. Our Staff personally inspects every meat and seafood product delivered to our stores.
Organic meat must be hormone-free, come from organically raised stock, be free-range and be fed a diet consisting only of organically grown feed.
Fresh Fish and Seafood The Jimbo’s…Naturally! commitment to quality and freshness is unsurpassed, as our fish contains absolutely no preservatives or antibacterials. Our fish are never injected or dipped with phosphates or sulfites and are never sprayed with chlorinated water – a step that inhibits surface bacteria so that less-than fresh fish can be sold.
To obtain the purest fish possible, we pick fish caught in waters known to be among the cleanest and coldest in the world. This decreases the possibility of pollutants and bacterial contamination. Jimbo’s only carries farm-raised fish whenever wild fish is not available. Some of our farm-raised fish, including trout, salmon, and catfish may be given antibiotics, however, they must go through a withdrawal period of at least 21 days before harvesting.
We order fish daily from reputable fishmongers- not several times a week, as some grocery chains do. If preservative-free filets are not available, we purchase whole fish and filet them in-house. We also carry preservative-free shellfish.
Beef Jimbo’s carries beef that is raised in a certified natural program without the use of hormones. Cattle are fed high-quality grain that is continuously tested to be free of herbicides and pesticides.
We also carry grass fed, organic, free-range beef that is low in fat and carries high quantities of omega-3 and omega-6 oils.
Poultry At no point does the poultry Jimbo’s sells receive any antibiotics including their feed or in their medicine. This is partly because they lead healthier lives. They live on the ground in large houses (not small wire cages), with outside space to roam and forage. That mobility builds stronger immunities, especially to antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as salmonella. Sick birds are simply withdrawn from the program, given medicine and sold to conventional markets.
Jimbo’s also carries organic chicken and turkey, which are raised just as our natural and free-range poultry, only they are fed certified organic feed.
We at Jimbo’s…Naturally! are proud of the quality of our meat and seafood. We pledge to continue our search for new and better products in the marketplace.
