I've noticed recently that they dropped "Organics" from their name--it used to be "Sunnyside Organics"...

I wonder, does this suggest less of a commitment to organic farming? It also makes their place a bit more difficult to distinguish from Sunnyside Farm, a West Virginia non-organic producer which also comes to the Dupont Market.
