What Is Organic Food?


The word “organic” refers to the way that farmers grow, raise, and process food. The organic farmer strives to use methods that encourage soil and water conservation and reduce pollution. Agricultural products are grown without chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Animals are raised without nontherapeutic antibiotics or growth hormones and are allowed some access to the outdoors. Organic foods can not be irradiated.
