Why Choose Organic?

It’s hard to believe that a mere 100 years ago all farming was done organically. Fast forward to the present day and industrialised farming has well and truly taken over. We cannot continue to ignore the many reasons to choose Organic foods.

Organophosphate pesticides, another fertiliser was developed initially as a nerve agents in chemical warfare. Organic foods on the other hand contain zero chemical solvents or additives and are not genetically modified.

Many of the synthetic substances found in non organic foods do not have long term studies to confirm their safety. Several studies show that organic foods contain more nutrients than nonorganic foods. Organic farming starts with the nourishment of the soil that naturally leads to nourishment of the plants making a tastier produce.
