this july we are looking at organic dairy and farming!

Find out about the high-quality food that is produced with people and planet in mind!

In the face of climate change here is a great need in an approach we use in food production, while keeping the quality of food high. Organic farming can be the answer.

Organic dairy come from cows that are raised without the use of potentially harmful drugs and chemicals, and the cows’ diet is also healthier, which all means higher animal welfare.

Organic farming is also beneficial to our planet. Organic farmers work to strict standards, which are dictated by legal requirements, and products coming from their farms must be certified and labelled accordingly. Using fewer pesticides and no artificial fertilisers, means increased biodiversity of the wildlife around farm areas which is great for people and wildlife.

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE ORGANIC?

Organic means supporting wildlife

Organic farms are havens for wildlife and provide homes for bees, birds, and butterflies. On average, plant, insect and bird life is 50% more abundant on organic farms.

The highest standards of animal welfare

Animals raised organically enjoy the highest welfare standards available. Organic standards insist that animals are given plenty of space and fresh air, and that they are raised in conditions that suit their natural behaviour. Smaller flocks and herds, and more access to the outdoors means organic animals don't have to be routinely treated with antibiotics and wormers. Mutilations like beak-trimming to prevent the aggressive side effects of stress are also not needed or allowed.

Reduced exposure to pesticides

Choosing organic is an easy way to limit our exposure to pesticides, herbicides (weed killers) and many additives and preservatives. Organic farmers aim to create a natural balance between plants and animals to prevent pests, so that they don't need to rely on pesticides.

Enjoying food as it should be

Choosing organic means that you are supporting farming practices with a more traceable production process and you will always know what's in your food. Organic standards prohibit GM crops and ingredients, hydrogenated fats, and controversial artificial foods colours and preservatives.
