Take Your Farm Into The 21st Century

I learned farming from my dad, who learned the art of cultivating crops from his father. I can tell you that over the years, a lot of things have changed. Although a lot of the basic farming principles remain the same, technology has evolved for farmers too. These days, I can reap more crops than I ever could before, which has made my business a lot more profitable. As you read through the agricultural information on my website, think about how these concepts could help your own business. Don't be afraid to try new things and to work with new companies, because it can improve your own company.

Concerned About The Food You Eat? 3 Reasons You Should Choose Organic

If you're like most people, you spend a lot of time in the grocery store. You probably also spend a lot of time choosing the right foods for you and your family. However, you might not spend much time considering the grains and produce you're purchasing. Unfortunately, that lack of consideration could mean that you're consuming foods that are harmful. This is particularly true if you're not choosing organic foods. Here are just three of the reasons why you should insist on organic foods whenever possible.

No Sewer-Based Fertilizer

Have you ever thought about the fertilizer that's used for the grains and produce that you're purchasing? If you haven't, you need to start. Many non-organic farms utilize sewer-based fertilizers for their crop production. Not sure what that means? Simply stated, it means that their crops are being fertilized by the waste that's processed through municipal sewer systems – fecal matter and other human and non-human waste. Unfortunately, sewage of this type can carry diseases that are harmful for your health. Organic farms use only plant-based organic fertilizers, which means the food you eat will be safe for human consumption.

No Growth Hormones

Have you noticed how some foods that you purchase seem to be considerably larger than those grown or raised naturally? One reason for this size difference is the use of growth hormones. Human growth hormones are used to increase the size of food, as well as increase the production of things such as milk and eggs. Unfortunately, those hormones pass through to the food you and your family are consuming. To avoid the consumption of growth hormones, you need to eat foods that have been organically grown and fertilized. This includes purchasing eggs and milk from companies that don't feed growth hormones to their cows and chickens.

No Harm to the Environment

Have you ever wondered how agricultural fertilizer products harm the environment? It's actually quite simple. Each time crops are watered and fertilized, the harmful chemicals soak into the soil. The run-off flows through to local waterways, where it can destroy delicate ecosystems along the way. Those chemicals are also absorbed into the groundwater, which eventually leads to drinking water. Organic fertilizers contain no harmful chemicals, which means they're safe for the environment and for you.

You want to make sure that the foods you eat are safe for you and your family. The best way to do that is to choose organic whenever possible. Make sure the foods you eat come from companies that use organic fertilizers. Contact a company like Nature Safe to learn more.
