Frequently Asked Questions About Organic

What does Biodynamic mean?

Short definition: a method of organic farming that incorporates certain astrological and spiritual principles and practices.

Longer definition: According to the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association, Biodynamic agriculture is based on individuals considering every aspect of the food system, "From how land is owned to how farms are capitalized to how food is produced, distributed and prepared." Additionally, Biodynamic agriculture recognizes that the entire planet is a "Single, self-regulating, multi-dimensional ecosystem."

So, by philosophy, Biodynamic farmers attempt to create a farm and farming system that is as self-regulating as possible and that supports biodiversity so that land and local communities remain healthy and vital.

Based on inspiration drawn from the spiritual-scientific insights of Rudolf Steiner, the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association was founded in 1938 and there are strict rules regarding this method of agriculture. Food products labeled "biodynamic" must be certified by an independent third party according to standards set by the Demeter® Biodynamic Farm Standard.

What does Organic mean?

Short definition: food produced without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial chemicals.

Longer definition: organic food is food which is produced using environmentally and animal friendly farming methods on organic farms. These methods are legally defined and any food sold as 'organic' must be strictly regulated. Organic farming recognises the direct connection between our health and how the food we eat is produced. Artificial fertilisers are banned and farmers develop fertile soil by rotating crops and using compost, manure and clover. Organic food is food produced in a way that complies with organic standards set by national governments and international organizations.

 What does I.P.M mean?

Integrated pest management (IPM) is a broad-based approach that integrates a range of practices for economic control of pests. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN defines IPM as “the careful consideration of all available pest control techniques and subsequent integration of appropriate measures that discourage the development of pest populations and keep pesticides and other interventions to levels that are economically justified and reduce or minimize risks to human health and the environment”. IPM emphasizes the growth of a healthy crop with the least possible disruption to agro-ecosystems and encourages natural pest control mechanisms. This includes managing insects, plant pathogens and weeds.

What does “Local – Spray Free”mean?

Fruit and veg grown locally, pesticides and fungicides are not used in the growing process.
