Why organic?

“Choosing organic food is like an insurance policy for your future health”

How can I make organic foods affordable?
Prioritize the items that you feel would benefit you and your family the most. Fruit and vegetables, grains and dairy products may take precedence, while you may decide that it is not necessary to spend the extra money on a bottle of organic tomato sauce. This is where you can make healthy choices.

Consider buying in bulk and save on the cost of packaging.

Buy in season and enjoy the variety. In season fruit and vegetables are not only fresh and full of flavour but cheaper too!

Here are some ways to bring more organics into your daily life....

  • Visit your local farmers market. This is where local farmers, growers and artisan food producers sell their products directly to the market making them cheaper for you
  • Find the organic section in your local supermarket. Even convenience foods such as packaged soups now come organically produced
  • Order organic foods online and have them delivered to your door. Simple, easy and no fuss!
  • Find your local organic orchards and make shopping an adventure
  • Grow your own! Visit your local garden centre and they will give you advice to get you started. Lettuces and herbs can grow in pots or you may decide on a veggie patch
  • Eat with the seasons, when the fruit or vegetables ripen fully and are ready for harvest. They will be at their highest nutritional value
  • Love your palate and delight it with the full flavours that organic food brings.
