We’ve all heard about the benefits of eating organic but, more often than not, the process involved in producing those lovely organic foods is left to the imagination. We see the higher price tag that often comes along with the organic label without an understanding of why. What would make you choose an organic tomato that looks identical to the one right beside it without the label at a reduced price? What is really involved in the process of organic farming and what makes it so great?
Organic farming is natural farming in its truest form. No additives, no pesticides, nothing but real whole foods full of all of the natural benefits we expect to come from what we fuel our bodies with. Not only does organic food have benefits that extend to ourselves and our families, but the real benefits extend much farther than that. Reduced carbon footprints, extended life spans for birds and plant life, and reduced gas emissions are just a few of the many benefits that come from supporting our organic farmers and organic farming practices.
Over time, as we go back to the natural organic way, we will see more and more benefits come to fruition. We will be able to leave future generations a planet to enjoy that’s full of natural beauty for years to come. Help do your part and go organic!
