Organic food is the produce of farming system which avoids the use of man-made fertilizers, pesticides, growth regulators. Irradiation and the use of genetically modified organisms(GMO’s) or products from or by GMO’s are generally prohibited by organic legislation.

Organic agriculture is a systems approach to production that is working towards environmentally, socially and economically sustainable production. Instead the agricultural systems rely on crop rotation, animal and plant manures, some hand weeding and biological pest control.

Buying local, organic foods will often cost less than the non-organic equivalent. Unfortunately, most of us cannot access organic food directly from the producer/farmer and therefore it tends to be more expensive that the basic non-organic equivalent in the supermarkets. It does pay to shop around. Some organic products cost less than premium non-organic products. You might be pleasantly surprised.

If you are on a tight budget but would like to buy more organic food, then you are at right place.
