Organically grown foods contain higher levels of antioxidants and healthy fats than conventionally grown varieties.
Organically grown foods tend to be more flavoursome, which is related to the non-deterioration of mineral content, it’s the minerals that form the compound which give the fruit or vegetable its flavour.
By buying organic, you also support the mitigation of climate change, protect the environment, promote animal welfare, and ensure your food is not genetically engineered.
Organic farmers DO NOT USE any form of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides to grow their produce.
Pesticides and chemicals sprayed on plants contaminate the soil, groundwater supply, lakes, rivers, oceans and the air, it also transfers over into the food we eat. Sometimes these harmful pesticides stick around for decades, or even longer.
Organic meat agriculture regulations require animals to be raised in living conditions that accommodate their natural behaviours, like the ability to graze and eat organic feed and forage without the administration of any hormones or antibiotics.
Organic farming reduces greenhouse gas emissions by not using manufactured chemical fertilisers, which are often imported from abroad and come from burning fossil fuels.
The environmental costs include damage from soil erosion, water pollution and destruction of wildlife habitat.
When we spend more for organic food, we are essentially paying farmers a little extra to maintain healthy soil using natural means. Exercising higher standards for animal welfare and avoiding Runoff water which does move pesticides into drainage systems, groundwater supply, lakes, rivers and oceans.
