The Organic Edge
Organic products meet stringent standards
Organic certification assures the public that products are grown and handled according to strict procedure without chemical inputs.
Organic production reduces health risks
Many EPA-approved pesticides were registered long before extensive research linked these chemicals to cancer and other diseases. Organic cultivation prevents more chemicals from getting into the earth, air and water systems.
Organic farms are better for our water resources
Organic farming eliminates polluting chemicals and nitrogen leaching that contaminate our water resources and food chains.
Organic farming builds healthy ecosystems
Organic cultivation relies upon practices that build balanced, healthy ecosystems. Organic farming creates richer soil for crops and wildlife and also reduces erosion.
