'Organic' Explained...

Organic is a 'whole system' approach to farming and food production. From the soil, to plants and animals, organic farming recognises the close relationship between all parts of the production process.

Some core principles of organic farming include:

  • Producing food of the highest quality with minimal processing.
  • Working within natural systems and cycles through all levels, from the soil, to plants and animals.
  • Encouraging sustainable crop rotations and using cultivation techniques that enhance and protect the soil and its life.
  • Recycling nutrients by using composted mature and vegetable waste.
  • Staying away from all use of GMO's (Genetically Modified Organisms), chemical fertilizers, pesticides and other synthetic colorants, preservatives etc.
  • Treating livestock ethically - meeting their physiological, behavioural and health needs.
  • Encouraging biodiversity and protecting sensitive habitats and landscapes.
  • Maximising the use of renewable resources.
  • Recycling and minimising pollution and waste.
  • Respecting regional, environmental, climatic and geographic differences and also the practices that have evolved in response to them.
  • Developing ecologically responsible production, processing and distribution chains which emphasise local systems.
