Why Purple Cow Organics?
Often, I am asked about the name of our company. Why Purple Cow? Especially
when I clarify that we do not use manure in our product line. Our name, Purple
Cow Organics, stems from a book written by the well-known author, Seth Godin,

growers in between. The common underlying thread is Diverse Biology. We
know it’s there because of DNA sequencing, we know it’s consistent due to many
years of continuous lab testing, and we know it works based upon direct
feedback and success stories from our customers (many of the testimonials you
will find throughout our website).
