Here are some important points regarding organic farming for you, the consumer and the organic farmers.


  • Organic farming is a science within itself that conventional farmers can learn while they transfer their capital resources and skills to master a trade that can be even more profitable than conventional farming.

  • Production cost can be reduced by over 25% by eliminating the use of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.  By conventional farmer's adopting this method, it will even minimize the soil erosion by up to 50%.  The crop yields would increase as well, researchers say up to five times that within 5 years.

  • In as little as 3 to 5 years, conventional farmers can adopt new and more effective ways of farming with a well planned strategy to transition to organic methods.

  • Wildlife as well as ecosystems and ground water can be supported in higher numbers as they are also improved.

  • Organic dairies benefit by having their cows graze on organic fields which equates to better health for the animals and better tasting and healthier products for the consumer.

  • Rich soils that can be used for decades exist because of organic farming.

  • Consumers will benefit by the quality - seeing, smelling and tasting the difference in organic products

  • Products that are organically grown will be more available at competitive prices.

  • Consumers can be happy to be able to eat products that are free from preservatives, artificial ingredients, and toxic chemicals - what the organically grown products provide.
