The Philosophy

  1. Why organic?

Why organic?

Eating organic foods means eating foods that are grown under natural conditions—these are the best foods for our bodies.

Organic foods are those grown in harmony with nature alongside the seasons and phases of the moon, free from chemicals and synthetic fertilisers. They are free from toxic processing procedures such as irradiation and chemical sterilisation, which are detrimental to our health and also to our unborn children. They are not coated with petroleum based waxes or unnaturally ripened, nor sprayed or gassed for better shelve preservation.

An organic garden is a hive of living activity – for worms and insects, bees and butterflies, colourful flowers and abundant fruit and vegetable producing plants, all actively working alongside each other. The soil is nurtured by composting all vegetable waste back into the earth, using natural methods of weed control, feeding it natural plant food and green manures, companion planting and rotating crops each year.

The organic farmer thinks consciously about his animals and their livelihoods—he ensures that they have enough room to run about, fresh food and pastures, sunshine and shelter and he treats any of his sick animals with natural non-toxic medicines. This means that any of the animal products being made for humans are free from harmful chemical residue.

Organic foods are much higher in nutrients, enzymes and minerals than their commercially grown relations, due to the rich soils they are grown in and the absence of harmful chemicals that destroy the interconnected and balanced life-cycle of nature. By buying local organic produce you are helping to strengthen your local economy and the farming practice that best suits and looks after the environment you live in. You are also looking after your own body with the best food nature can supply.

Eat Organic – it tastes great!
