William Jennings Bryan said that “Agriculture is the noblest of all alchemy; for it turns earth, and even manure, into gold, conferring upon its cultivator the additional reward of health”.
In recent years, the food industry has seen a significant increase in the demand for organically grown foods. It can be attributed to the common belief that organic foods are much healthier for human and our environment. The organic farming puts ecologically friendly techniques into practice by relying on biological pest management and composting. Organic food is grown without using synthetic chemicals, antibiotics, or hormones in both crop production and raising livestock.
Consumers want organics because of their reduced danger from pesticide residue but also increased nutritional value. The organically produced foods are significantly higher in vitamin C, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus and lower in toxic nitrates.
Our life and families are the most important things and only with a proper education for our taste and health we can offer them the quality and safety they need . For Northbourne “Food of better quality is food which has vitality, individuality, freshness; food which is grown right, not only food that looks right; food which is effective as a vehicle of life and is not either mere stimulant or mere filling”.
