what is organic farming?


Organic farming is a method of farming that uses a holistic approach, aimed at nurturing both the land and the animals. Organic farming practices are different to conventional farming practices and are more in line with what many consider traditional or natural.


Organic farming does not use pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, other synthetic chemicals or hormones, and livestock are considered to have a better quality of life.


Livestock are grass fed, free range and raised with a huge emphasis on animal welfare and low stress farming techniques.

what is certified organic?


In Australia, organic certification is performed by several organisations that are accredited by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF). Currently there are seven registered DAFF accredited certifying bodies. Organic businesses can only gain certification through one of the accredited bodies and must meet strict guidelines set by that organisation.
