The organic standard was created around the ideas of preserving the life in the soil. But it appears to have morphed into a debate over what sprays farmers can use. What sprays we can not use. What substances can be added to the processed and packaged organic foods, etc… The most unfortunate part of the organic standard is that it is determined and approved by a board of bureaucrats.
The basic concept of the organic standard has changed and thus educating people about its origin is proper. Any organic farm that is destroying the life in their soil with their farming practices is not really an organic farm. The most simple factor in determining if produce is safe to eat is to understand a farms growing practices. A label on food that says organic most likely does not mean what people think it means.
Let us remember that organic farming should mimic nature by preserving life. We have written about our farming practices and invite you to learn more.
