Are we Organic?
Always have the highest mineral profile and complete spectrum of nutrients, essential enzymes, etc. This was the way agriculture was intended to be and the best way of sustaining the earth and mankind.
Due to rampant deforestation the Permaculture approach is the only alternative way of obtaining the same quality as wild or forest sourced produce. Permaculture is a technique of working with nature and using all the resources provided by nature to sow, protect and harvest crops. This means that no fertilizers, pesticides, etc are used at all, not even those of organic nature. The key to the success of a permaculture farm is the preparation of its soil to be mineral rich and planting crops in a manner to harvest all the sun and water available. We are slowly partnering with local permaculture farms to bring more of these products into the market although many of them operate with a very minimal produce.
While Organic is the term most understood by the layman it is not necessarily the best option. But sometimes the most easily available of the better options for buying your food. Organic is may be the best option for foods produced on a large scale. With Organic farming fertilizers, pesticides, etc may be used but they are organic in nature and do not contain any harmful chemicals. Usually farms that practice Organic style of agriculture can get a certificate if they have been following Organic procedures for a minimum of 3 yrs. However the costs and procedures does not make it feasible for small and independent farmers to get certified.
