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.
