5 Reasons to choose Organic
Organic produce does not contain poisonous chemicals.
Organic food is free from:
→ hormones → pesticides
→ toxic chemicals → antibiotics
→ artificial fertilizers → food additives
→ mould retardants → irradiation.
Fact: The average conventionally-grown apple has 20-30 artificial poisons on its skin, even after rinsing.
Pesticide exposure alone has been linked to cancer, reproductive problems and neurological disease.
Most organic processed foods are preservative free.
2. No GMO
Going organic is the only practical way to avoid eating genetically modified (GM) food. Studies have repeatedly shown GMO foods to cause devastating and potentially lifelong effects to the health of animals and humans that consume genetically modified foods.
3. Nutrient Rich
Organic farming is committed to the production of nutritious crops.
The enrichment and reparation of lands and soils ensure that plants and animals enjoy an abundance of naturally occurring nutrients.
It is no wonder that fresh organic produce contains an average of 50% (and up to 400%) more vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other micro-nutrients than the mass-produced variety.
Organic fruit and vegetables boast considerably higher quantities of antioxidants, which have been proven to be effective in disease prevention, especially cancer.
Fact: According to an international study, nutrient content has plummeted – by 40% in vegetables, almost 30% in meat and 20% in fruit – in just two generations.
4. Cruelty Free
Organic certification carries a guarantee of respect for animal welfare.
Organic meats are sourced from animals that are treated humanely and are reared on certified organic feeds and pastures, giving them a superior taste.
5. Environmentally Responsible
Organic farming follows best environmental practice via an intelligent fusion of traditional agricultural wisdom and modern techniques.
Organic farming is free of harmful chemical, pesticides and fertilizers, keeping pollutants out of our land, air and waterways.
Organic methods provide nutrient-rich soils from which clean produce is grown, making farming sustainable for the future.
Buying organic is an investment in our precious environment.
Organic systems work in harmony with nature creating a healthy environment rich in wildlife, woodlands and nutrients.
Organic farmers are committed to the conservation of energy, soil and water via recycling and use of renewable resources within the farming system.
Minimalist intervention in farming practices results in minimal environmental impact, hence biodiversity within the farm and surrounding areas.
