Organic Food Information

organic food and dishes Some people know that food that is grown according to organic principles is free from exposure to harmful herbicides and pesticides. But this is only one small aspect of organic agriculture. Organic agriculture is an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity. It is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony."

'Organic' is a labeling term that denotes products produced under the authority of the Organic Foods Production Act. The principal guidelines for organic production are to use materials and practices that enhance the ecological balance of natural systems and that integrate the parts of the farming system into an ecological whole." "Organic agriculture practices cannot ensure that products are completely free of residues; however, methods are used to minimize pollution from air, soil and water." "Organic food handlers, processors and retailers adhere to standards that maintain the integrity of organic agricultural products. The primary goal of organic agriculture is to optimize the health and productivity of interdependent communities of soil life, plants, animals and people.

People who grow fruits and vegetables without using pesticides are finding their basic business plan is one with strong growth potential, as the demand for organics rises exponentially.

Nothing tastes better than a cucumber just picked from the garden. The freshest, healthiest, most flavorful organic food is what's grown closest to your home.
