Organic farming is an approach to food production that recognises that our health is directly connected to the food we eat and, ultimately to the health of the soil.
It recognises the need to farm without artificial inputs, and uses crop rotations to make the soil more fertile. For example, a farmer might graze sheep on a field one year, making the soil more fertile, and then plant barley the next and so on. Organic farming does not allow the use of genetically modified crops.
Sustainability is at the core of the organic approach, and the standards we have to adhere to include not only the ingredients, but also how organic beer is made, packaged and traded.
The word organic is defined by law. Any food labelled organic must meet a strict set of standards. Look for the Soil Association symbol for your guarantee of the highest organic standards.
