Monsanto, the makers of PCB's, ROUND UP, DIOXIN & AGENT ORANGE, and who have shown they hate farmers who don't use their products, have just won a landmark case against an organic farmer which sets a precedent leaving no legal protections in place for organic farmers whose crops are contaminated with GM seeds. This puts many farmers at risk whose properties border other farms growing GM crops.

Organic Facts

About organics


Organic and holistic farming

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe Organic food is good for you, good for farmers and good for the earth. We believe in certified organic and that the cost of certified organic food, in general, is a reflection of the real cost of real food. We support and promote Australian certified organic products. We also recognize there are many cottage produced products that are not certified, yet are produced by organic methods and true permaculture and ethical farming and manufacturing using unpolluted ingredients.  We see these as valid and authentic holistic.

We have sourced our products seeking 'authenticity', so we will tell you what our products are and where they are from - we see authenticity as the most purposeful and practical foundation to ascertain if a product is a viable choice to eat or use, that is truly healthy, free of harmful ingredients or modifications, and if is it truly organic, eco-friendly or sustainable. This is why real information about products as opposed to gimmicky market-speak is critical to identifying authenticity.


Organic 

There is a growing body of scientific evidence showing that authentic organically grown crops and products have a range of health benefits over chemically modified or synthetically interfered with products. By choosing organic and holistically produced products you're eating naturally healthy food that was grown on healthy farms and  products made with your health in mind as opposed to making money at any cost from you as a consumer. Your Organic Markets supports organic products as defined above, because generally they are better and safer. There are many reasons why Organic and holistic methods are worth pursuing, but here are just a couple of the main ones:

1 

Nutritional value. Well-grown organic food contains more vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants than conventional food because it is grown in healthy, nutrient balanced soils.

2 

To protect future generations. The food choices we make now, determine our children’s future health.

3 

Pay the true cost. By choosing organically grown and produced food you are paying for the true cost of food production now rather than deferring a cost which is ultimately paid by future generations. 

4 

Organic tastes better. Organic farming starts with the nourishment of the soil, which leads to the nourishment of the plant and, produces tastier products.

5 

Chemical free. Organic food is chemical-free making it the purest available. Did you know that around 400 different chemicals are registered for use on Australian farms and only a small number of these have been fully tested for their potential harmful properties?

6 

Organic food is GMO free. One of the fundamentals of organic farming is the belief in keeping in touch with nature. True organic farming practice does not allow genetically modified ingredients to be used. So, eating organic food is the best way to ensure that you are not consuming genetically modified foods.

7 

To protect our environment. Not only is organic food good for your body, but it's also good for the environment. Organic farming stimulates biodiversity, and without the use of herbicides and pesticides, wildlife is given a new lease of life. plus, there are no polluting chemicals.

 

What is the difference between Bio-Dynamic Farming and Organic Farming?

Bio-Dynamic farming utilises natures gifts to produce HEALTHY soil which, in turn, provides the necessary ingredients for a plant to grow well and also produces the environment to minimise the risk of disease and pest infestation.

The structured soil created by the methods of the Bio-Dynamic farmer provides air for soil biology, humus development and access to sunlight and warmth. These being responsible for the taste, aroma, form and colour of the fruit produced.

Because the product is grown with nature doing her best, they ensure we obtain the ingredients to help us be healthy and vibrant.

Why does the product we get from biodynamic farming methods taste so much more like we expect top quality fruit to taste than various other types?

The methods used to grow the product, ensuring the soil is healthy provides the greatest opportunity for the soil to resist pest infestation and disease. This in turn gives the plants the best chance of delivering product the way we like to be able eat it.
