Environmental Benefits

Organic food production is a much more natural and sustainable enterprise than conventional farming. This is because organic agriculture does not use any synthetic pesticides or inputs that often remain present in soil and water long after the crops have been harvested, and may potentially create additional damage to ecosystems (such as the current crisis with bee populations). Also, organic agricultural methods encourage recycling, for instance using manure as a natural fertilizer in fields.

Nutrition and Health Benefits

It has been scientifically validated that many organic foods offer higher quantities of important vitamins and nutrients than their conventional counterparts. Certainly, the consumption of organic foods reduces the amount of pesticide residues and other potential toxins ingested. This has proven to be a particularly important benefit for infants and small children.

Social Benefits

Most organic farmers operate smaller scale family farms where they have a strong, personal connection to the land they are farming. The purchase of organic food supports these farmers, their families, and their communities.
