What is Organic Food?

The basis of “Organic” refers to methods of farming and processing foods that are safe for the earth and its future.

Organic farmers do not use chemicals to alter their food in any way. Farmers ensure their food is grown without the use of conventional pesticide, artificial fertilizers, human waste, or sewage sludge. For animals, organic means these animals are raised in a humane way without the use of antibiotics, growth hormones, or genetic modification.
