Why Organic?
  • Nutrient density - Organic farmers nourish the soil that feeds their food. Research shows that organically-produced foods are higher in antioxidants and other nutrients than their conventional counterparts.
  • No persistent pesticides or synthetic fertilizers - Designed by intent to kill living organisms, persistent pesticides can be harmful to wildlife and human health, especially as they contaminate their food, air and water or accumulate in people's cells. Synthetic fertilizers require large quantities of fossil fuels to produce, and contribute to soil degradation and ocean dead zones. more: pesticides fertilizers
  • No synthetic growth or breeding hormones - Avoiding synthetic hormones (which are frequently given to conventional dairy and meat animals to alter reproductive cycles and speed up growth) means less stress for animals, and reduced human exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals.
  • No antibiotics - Overuse of antibiotics in farm animals leads to the development of dangerous antibiotic-resistant infections. Organic farmers instead rely on natural measures to promote and maintain animal health.
  • No GMOs - Genetically engineered crops are a relatively recent technology with potentially devastating impacts on ecosystems and human and animal health. Organic regulations forbid the use of genetically engineered seeds or animals (including clones).
  • Animal care - Organic philosophy means raising animals in harmony with nature. Quality animal care keeps animals healthy and productive, naturally. As they like to say, happy cows make the best milk!
  • Children and adolescents who are obese are likely to be obese as adults 11-14 and are therefore more at risk for adult health problems such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, several types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.
  • Healthy lifestyle habits, including healthy eating and physical activity, can lower the risk of becoming obese and developing related diseases.
