Seven reasons to buy Organic?

FOR HEALTH
On average, organic fruit and vegetables contain higher levels of vitamins, essential minerals and cancer-fighting antioxidants.

TASTE
Less take-up of water. Smaller production and tastier varieties are grown.

NO NASTY ADDITIVES
Amongst the many additives banned by the Soil Association are hydrogenated fat, aspartame and monosodium glutamate. Genetically modified organisms are also banned.

AVOIDS PESTICIDES
Over 300 chemical pesticides are routinely used in unnatural farming. Pesticides are often present in non-organic food.

CARE FOR ANIMALS
No system of farming has higher levels of animal welfare standards than organic farms. Feed for animals must be GM free - unlike other systems.

GOOD FOR WILDLIFE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Organic farming is better for wildlife, lower pollution from sprays and produces less carbon dioxide - the main global warming gas.

COST EFFECTIVE
Organic produce does not attract the levels of taxation imposed for cleaning the environment and the associated health risks, making organic production more cost effective long-term.

Peace of mind - our produce is traceable and in the main produced by passionate, ethical small businesses.
