thought for the day:

organic = sustainable

what customers are saying:

I left Countryside for cheaper, "All-Natural" feed. When my customers started COMPLAINING about the taste of my eggs I came back to Countryside!

Thorvin™ Kelp

About Thorvin™ Kelp

Countryside Organics sells two different Thorvin Kelp products. The Thorvin Brand Icelandic, Geothermal kelp is certified organic. Nature’s Kelp, Harvested in Ireland and imported by Thorvin is not certified organic.

Thorvin kelp is:
•       The finest certified organic nutrient source on the market today;
•       Contains a range of minerals and vitamins often deficient in soils and feed;
•       Has a broad array of uses in agriculture and product formulations.

Healthy animals require a balanced diet, including many vitamins and minerals not found in today’s forages or feeds.  Kelp is a valuable renewable resource for animal health.  Kelp concentrates the nutritious minerals dissolved in ocean water into a complex natural food supplement containing over 60 vitamins, minerals, and amino acids in a readily available form, including iodine.  Absorbable iodine, deficient in many soils, grasses and feeds, is essential for healthy thyroid function.

Kelps are among the most useful species of seaweeds. The most valuable kelps grow in cold, mineral-rich waters and grow more slowly.  These kelps collect minerals, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids and other beneficial bioactive
properties. Thorvin carefully captures and preserves these nutrients using the most effective drying and storing methods in order to deliver the most
consistently effective products derived from these kelps.  Thorvin requires superior selection, management, harvesting and processing to meet its standards.
