Organic Agriculture

Organic farming is a sustainable for of Agriculture which seeks to provide the consumer, with fresh, tasty and healthy natural food while respecting natural life-cycle systems.

Organic Farming is characterized by crop rotation, very strict limits on chemical synthetic pesticide and synthetic fertiliser use, livestock antibiotics, food additives and processing aids and absolute prohibition of the use of genetically modified organisms.

High levels of animal welfare is a must, livestock are raised in free-range, open-air systems and providing them with organic feed using animal husbandry practices appropriate to different livestock species.

Organic farming is part of a larger supply chain, which encompasses food processing, distribution and retailing sectors and, ultimately the consumer. So every time you buy an organic salad from your local supermarket, or choose an organic wine from the menu at your favourite restaurant, you can be sure they were produced according to strict rules aimed at respecting the environment and animals.
