Vegetables are the foundation of any healthy diet. Not only are they packed with energy and nutrients, but when grown organically, they have the potential to taste better than you ever imagined. That's because they are free of chemicals, the plants' nutritional needs are fully met and the growing medium is optimal.
With organic farming, vegetable are fully cultivated and ready for immediate consumption. This results in less cooking time and the highest possible nutritional value. Choosing organic also means your vegetables contain no insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, chemical fertilizers or genetic modifications. Unlike conventional farming, which depletes the soil, organic farming improves the soil and even builds topsoil through the composting of farm waste.
