What is Organic

Organic means you do not use chemicals or artificial fertilizers to grow plants. Many organic minded people also extend this philosophy to their everyday lives and select natural products for their home and environs.

Be wary many people say they grow food organically because they don't use chemicals, but they still use artificial fertilizers. The use of high nitrogen fertilizers, like urea, are prohibited in organic agriculture. There are many natural or organically certified inputs that can be used in organic agriculture. These are allowed inputs are listed in the organic standards and other publications and information available through the certifier's websites.
