Why Organic?

There are many reasons people choose to purchase organic foods on a daily basis. Organic food purchases have continued to increase

yearly at an average rate of 12%. This yearly increase represents many motivations by consumers. Here is a list of the main reasons you will want to continue to purchase organic produce and foods.

 

  1. Tastier – This may seem like a shallow unimportant fact when deciding to purchase organic food. Yet it is the second most important factor in what foods we buy. If it doesn’t taste good, no matter how good it is for you, you are not going to want to keep eating it. Well, lucky for you, organic food has proven to taste better than conventional grown produce time and time again. Many polls and much research, believe it or not, has gone into this very topic. It is also one of the top comments we hear from our customers. There are people who have sworn off eating apples until they try organic apples and then there hooked…so how ‘bout them apples!
  2. Healthier – Organic foods contain higher antioxidant levels, vitamin c and essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron and chromium. Some studies say organic foods are nearly 25% more nutritious in terms of vitamins and minerals. Why is this you ask? Well, for a number of important reasons. The main one being that the soil organic farmer grown in is vastly richer in key nutrients. We can never fully appreciate the intense efforts organics farmers put into their crops. Rotating fields and planting cover crops help keep their soil healthy. They also do not use nasty chemical fertilizers or sewage sludge on their land but instead choose to buy and use organic fertilizers such as compost and animal manure.
  3. Safer – Organic food is pure food, safe food. It is free of chemical pesticides and never Genetically Modified (GMO). More than 400 chemical pesticides are routinely used in conventional farming and residue remains of these non-organic products even after washing. Children are especially vulnerable to the harmful effects pesticides have on the human body. We believe in feeding our children safe food and our goal is to provide you with the best possible options to feed your children safe food, as well.

 

We believe that a healthy body and future comes down to the choices we make daily for ourselves and our children. Choosing to keep the food in our home safe, means we give ourselves and our children a better chance at living a long healthy life, free of disease, obesity and the need for medications. Buying organic also means that we enjoy the best of life. Organic meals and snacks may be good for the body but having them taste like heaven is good for the soul!
