There are lots of reasons to choose organic. Here are some of our top reasons,
Organic Farming is Better for the Environment
Organic farming uses fewer pesticides. It works with the natural environment, protecting and encouraging wildlife whilst looking after the health of the soil. Instead of relying on chemicals, organic farmers work with nature to feed the soil and control pests.
Organic Food is Natural Food
When you choose organic you’re choosing natural food. GM crops and ingredients are banned in organic farming as are hydrogenated fats, artificial pesticides, aspartame, tartrazine, monosodium glutamate and lots of other nasties you’d probably rather not be eating.
Organic Food Tastes Great!
Organic farmers rely on developing a healthy, fertile soil to grow a mixture of crops suited to local conditions that are bursting with flavour. Growers tend to produce a wider variety of vegetables that supermarkets may not be as able to stock due to how they travel, or store. Our short supply chains mean we can concentrate on flavour rather than what something looks like on the shelf.
Organic Farming has Higher Animal Welfare Standards
Organic eggs are always from free-range chickens. Organic standards insist that animals are given more space than conventional farming which encourages healthy animals meaning fewer drugs or antibiotics.
