What’s an Organic Farm?
Farming organically means working with Nature, growing crops in ways that recycle resources, promote ecological balance and conserve biodiversity — and that means no synthetic chemicals for fertilizing the plants or fighting pests and diseases.
It actually takes 3 years for a farm to be certified organic! To earn our certification, we use approved organic practices that recycle resources, promote ecological balance and conserve biodiversity.
So we have to plan ahead and work hard…but the ultimate reward is the healthy and delicious organic produce we love to eat.
In Today’s Step, join us out in the field through this video for a quick guide to the basics of organic farming — then share it with a friend. (Careful, though: seeing these gorgeous organic lettuces might make you hungry for a fresh organic salad!)
