At Nana Nairne Preserves we advocate the organic principles of delivering the highest levels of animal welfare, protecting human and animal health and safeguarding the environment. This is why we are proud to announce our certification with the Organic Soil Association.
Following an organic diet can have a major impact on your personal health and mental and emotional wellbeing. This is due to the fact that organic foods often have less toxins and more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants, than their conventionally-grown counterparts. The demand for organic food is driven by concerns for personal health and the environment and this demand is only getting stronger.
How our food is grown or raised also impacts our environment. Organic farming practices reduce pollution, conserve water, reduce soil erosion, increase soil fertility, and use less energy. Organic Standards also prohibit the use of minimal nutrients, GE/GMO crops and synthetic chemicals such as synthetic pesticides. These elements contribute to the detrimental effect on our environment, local wildlife and also reside on (and in) the food we eat.
SOME CORE SOIL ASSOCIATION PRINCIPLES
- To produce food of high quality and in sufficient quantity by the use of processes that do not harm the environment, human health, plant health or animal health and welfare.
- To maximise the use of renewable resources and recycling.
- To exclude the use of soluble mineral fertilisers.
- To foster biodiversity and protect sensitive habitats and landscape features.
- To minimise pollution and waste.
- To exclude the use of GMOs and products produced from or by GMOs with the exception of veterinary medicinal products.
ALL OF OUR PRODUCTS ARE ORGANIC
