Can I afford Organic Food?
We think that you can’t afford not to – and when you look at the benefits in every organic fruit or vegetable compared to conventionally farmed foods it isn’t actually that much more expensive. In fact many of the organic lines we sell in this store are significantly more affordable when compared to our competitors. You will be surprised to know that some of our organic produces are priced lower than the conventional ones sold at the supermarkets. This is made possible though not having a walk in store and purely running an e-store.
Why Choose Organic?
There are lots of great reasons to choose organic food…here are just a few of them.
- Good for people
Organic fruit and vegetables have been shown in a number of studies to contain more cancer-fighting antioxidants than non-organic food as well as being GMO free and free from those nasty chemical pesticides.
- Good for the soil
Organic systems rely on a modern and scientific understanding of ecology and soil science, while also depending on traditional methods of crop rotations to ensure fertility and weed and pest control.
- Good for the environment
Organic systems aim to reduce dependence on non-renewable resources. Organic production aims at all times towards sustainability whilst having best management of the environment and wildlife as a priority.
- No synthetic chemicals
Organic systems prohibit the use of artificial chemicals, pesticides and fertilisers. We don’t use these on the crops, and we don’t use these on our animals who go though life without the treatment of synthetic growth hormones or drugs.
Why is organic certification important
The only way to distinguish between a genuine certified organic product and a non-organic product is to check for an organic certification logo and number on the product label. When making a purchase, check if the product clearly states the certifier of the product. As for our label less products: we work closely with the farmers ensuring that all of the products we get are certified organic.
