Organic farming is kinder to the environment. Organic farming keeps pesticides off the earth and out of the soil.
It forbids the use of synthetic fertilisers and pesticides, and instead relies on the use of sustainable practices like composting, crop rotation, and cover crops.1
In a recent field study in Europe, 317 conventional soil samples revealed the use of 76 different pesticide residues, and 86% of those soils contained at least 1 or more pesticide residues which find their way into the pastures grown there.2
Healthy soil sets the foundations for healthy pastures. Healthy soil retains more moisture which allows plant roots retain more soil. This helps to reduce soil erosion, nitrous oxide emissions, and chemical run-off into our waterways.1,3,4
Not only can we tell the difference, our Goats can too. Goats can graze on organic pastures free from toxic synthetic chemicals which allows them to not only to stay happy and healthy, but produce gentle milk in a healthier environment, the way nature intended!
