  What is "Organic"?

Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones.

The Benefits of Organic Food

Hain Pure Foods offers organic products because they protect the environment and lead to healthy and safe eating. Organic farmers are concerned with soils that are nourished and well balanced to grow strong and healthy products that taste great.

Organic farming also prohibits the use of pesticides that can be harmful to humans and may be associated with birth defects, nerve damage and genetic mutation. Organic growers also use farming techniques that eliminate polluting chemicals and nitrogen leaching, thereby protecting our precious water resources.

Soil is the most important element in organic farming. American farms are suffering from the worst erosion in history. Organic farmers protect against soil erosion by not relying on synthetic fertilizers, but by building their soil through natural practices such as using composted manure and planting diverse crops.
