Organic systems recognise that our health is directly connected to the health of the food we eat and, ultimately, the health of the soil.
Organic farmers aim to produce good food from a balanced living soil. Strict regulations, known as standards, define what we can and can't do. They place strong emphasis on protecting the environment.
Working with nature as our ally, the less pollution we introduce into the soil, rivers, and aquifers, the better for us and our wildlife.
With more biodiversity in the area as a result of not using chemicals, wildlife really does thrive.
