We believe that by making organic choices and shopping seasonally we can do what’s good for both the planet, and good for you.
Organic farming methods mean foods are free of artificial fertilisers and use naturally derived pesticides which reduces pollution to our soils, waterways and air. These conditions provide more suitable habitats for wildlife such as insects including bees which are crucial for pollination.
Organic farms have lower emissions and use less energy, with research showing that organic crops also have a much higher nutritional quality than their non organic equivalents.*
To top it off they certainly taste a lot better - try a taste test between an organic carrot and non-organic supermarket carrot, we bet you’ll notice a difference!
