It is our belief that pure, good food plays a vital and significant role in our lives, promoting physical and emotional well-being. “Organic – back to better!”highlights the difference between organic, naturally grown food – full of vital nutrition and lots of life, as opposed to artificial, instant food. We believe in the power of food and its positive effect.
Why Not ?! – Reasons Why
Imagine watering your precious plant with gasoline? it will die immediately.
You are a living plant too, stronger and more resilient then your window-sill plant but also susceptible to the damaging effect of artificial food or highly processed food that turn toxic under such heavy processing.
Organic – By Definition.
Indicates a relation between elements, they fit together harmoniously as a necessary part of the whole.
Organic – In Food.
Farming Practices that let the food grow naturally with out science intervention.
“Organic agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects. Organic agriculture combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote fair relationships and a good quality of life for all involved..”
—International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements
1. Delicious and Nutritious.
Have an organic tomato (in the summer) and experience the full sensation of flavors rushing thru your every cell. And the same is with every organic food verses not. Organic farmers nourish the soil that feeds our food. Research shows that organically-produced foods are higher in antioxidants and other nutrients than their conventional counterparts.
2. No synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.
Designed to kill living organisms, persistent pesticides can be harmful to wildlife and human health, especially as they contaminate our food, air and water or accumulate in our cells. Synthetic fertilizers require large quantities of fossil fuels to produce, and contribute to soil degradation and ocean dead zones.
3. No growth or breeding hormones.
Imagine eating hormones… the number two cause of thyroid function failure, after radiation. Avoiding synthetic hormones (which are frequently given to conventional dairy and meat animals to alter reproductive cycles and speed up growth) means less stress for animals, and reduced human exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals.
Organic regulations strictly forbid the use of synthetic growth or breeding hormones in livestock, because of concerns for potential impacts on the environment, human and animal health.
4. No antibiotics.
Overuse of antibiotics in farm animals leads to the development of dangerous antibiotic-resistant infections. Organic farmers instead rely on natural measures to promote and maintain animal health.
5. No GMOs.
Genetically engineered crops are a relatively recent technology with potentially devastating impacts on ecosystems, human and animal health. Organic regulations forbid the use of genetically engineered seeds or animals (including clones).
6. Animal care.
Organic philosophy means raising animals in harmony with nature. Quality animal care keeps animals healthy and productive, naturally. As we like to say, happy cows make the best milk!
