We choose to make use of organic vegetables whenever possible because we believe that good health and well-being for our crops is what brings good health and well-being to our own bodies. The use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides in agriculture has not grown so widespread because of a desire by industrialised farmers to make us more healthy.
So why has their use become so popular? Because high yields and high profit margins have been the driving force.
The result being an abundance of nutritionally lower quality crops to flood the market with cheap and tasteless vegetables and fruit.
Not only can you see a difference in your health when you switch to organic you also taste the difference.
