So organic farming is more than just agriculture–and it’s good to remind ourselves of this from time to time. We’re helping to create a healthier, better future for everyone. It’s Regenerative Agriculture. Regenerative Agriculture has become a whole science over the last 20 years, involving more than just farming and selling products. As we regenerate local woodlands and streams, as we help regenerate our local communities, many benefits come to us, monetary and otherwise. That gives most organic farmers a satisfaction beyond mere profits.
Now I’ve been asked by my friends from time to time about why my family chooses to utilize organic methods and buy organic products. And I think the above quote does a good job of explaining it. It’s the healthier lifestyle and the ability to contribute to the regeneration and sustainability of earth. Granted, it’s a very small contribution, but as they say “Think globally, act locally.”
