Why Organic?

 

 What is organic?

Organic refers to the way agricultural products and foods are grown and processed. Organic production is based on a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers. To maintain the integrity of the final product, organic foods are minimally processed without artificial ingredients, preservatives, or irradiation. The "organic" food label identifies food grown with practices that:
 

  • Don't use synthetic pesticides, herbicides and soil fumigants.
  • Don't use genetic engineering - no GMO's!
  • Don't use sewage sludge as fertilizer
  • Do improve the quality and fertility of the soil
  • Do protect water quality
  • Do reduce soil erosion
  • Do rely on natural biological systems for pest and weed control
  • Don't expose farm workers to synthetic pesticides
  • Do reduce the impact of agriculture on our environment
  • Do produce high quality, great tasting food

    What is USDA Certified Organic?

    The Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA) and the National Organic Program (NOP) assure consumers that the organic agricultural products they purchase are produced, processed, and certifi ed to consistent national organic standards. The labeling requirements of the NOP apply to raw, fresh products and processed products that contain organic agricultural ingredients.   Agricultural products that are sold, labeled or represented as organic must be produced and processed in accordance with the NOP standards and must be certified by USDA-accredited certifying agents.

    Do the terms "natural" and "organic" mean the same thing?

    No. According to the USDA, the terms "natural" and "organic" are not interchangeable. Only food labeled "organic" meets USDA's national organic standards. While other claims, such as "natural," "free-range," and "hormone-free," can still appear on food labels these terms should not be confused with "organic.
