When we discover certified organic foods that taste great and represent good value for money, we delight in listing them. Organic farmers put animal welfare at the heart of what they do. By eschewing the use of pesticides and synthetic fertilisers and by using tried-and-tested traditional farming methods that respect nature, their farms bring clear benefits for wildlife, the environment, and both human and animal health.
Why aren't we 100 per cent organic? If we had a rigid 'only organic' rule, we would have to turn our backs on many really excellent and worthwhile products, such as heirloom orchard fruits, game, traditionally reared meats and artisan cheeses, just because they don't happen to be organic. And that would break our hearts!
