Reasons to buy organic


  • Protect future generations: Children receive four times more exposure than adults to cancer-causing pesticides in food.
  • Prevent soil erosion: Three billion tons of topsoil are eroded from crop lands in the U.S. each year, much of it due to conventional farming practices, which often ignore the health of the soil.
  • Protect water quality: The EPA estimates that pesticides pollute the primary source of drinking water for more than half the country’s population.
  • Keep chemicals off your plate/Protect farm worker health: Pesticides are poisons designed to kill living organisms, and can also be harmful to humans.
  • Save Energy: More energy is now used to produce synthetic fertilizers than to till, cultivate and harvest all the crops in the U.S.
  • Help small farmers: Although more and more large scale farms are making the conversion to organic practices, most organic farms are small, independently owned and operated family farms.
  • Support a true economy: Organic foods might seem expensive; however, your tax dollars pay for hazardous waste clean up and environmental damage caused by conventional farming.
  • Promote bio-diversity: Planting large plots of land with the same crop year after year tripled farm production between 1950 and 1970, but the lack of natural diversity of plant life has negatively affected soil quality.
  • Flavor & nourishment: Organic farming starts with the nourishment of the soil, producing nourished & nourishing plants. Conduct your own taste test!
