Organic foods are a healthy choice for your body!

Choosing organic foods helps you to avoid ingesting chemical and pesticide residues found on conventionally grown fruits and vegetables. In addition, research shows that foods grown organically have a better nutritional profile than those grown with non-organic methods.

Organic foods are a better choice for our environment too! Pesticides used in non-organic farming are linked to declining populations of bees, butterflies, fish, birds and more. In addition, overuse of chemical fertilizers contaminates ground water supplies and damages the health of the soil. In contrast, organic farming methods help conserve soil fertility and biodiversity naturally by replenishing soils with compost and mulch, and by choosing farming techniques known to improve the health of the entire ecosystem.
