Define: Certified Organic
We've all see the label 'Certified Organic' label on our products, they usually lead us purchase them don't they! But what does it mean exactly?
Certified Organic must follow the rules!
*Produce grown without the use of herbicides and pesticides
*No genetic modification
*No sewage sludge fertilization (pe-eww!)
*Farmers are required to conserve soil quality
*Use of non-toxic pest management
All those are great things, support organic lines! But remember small farms often can't afford the certification process but are running farms that follow all of those rules, sometimes more! So investigate your local farms and support them as well. Know what you are buying, purchase is power!
