The Organic Advantage

Going organic makes sense for your operation

The Economic Advantage

Organic grain farmers in the Western Canadian prairies, despite the fact that they spend half as much per acre, will net twice as much as their conventional neighbours. Organic grain farmers in Eastern Canada, while they spend about the same in variable costs, will net three times as much as their non-organic neighbour.

The Environmental Advantage

Farming is not supposed to make people sick; it is supposed to provide healthy, whole foods to our growing population. The premise of organic farming is to preserve the natural environment and cause as little disturbance as possible, the goal is to optimize the health and productivity of interdependent communities of soil life, plants, animals and people. Transitioning from conventional to organic farming gives you the power to change lives and ultimately, change the world.

The Healthy Advantage

The largest study of its kind has found that organic foods and crops have a suite of advantages over their conventional counterparts, including more antioxidants and fewer, less frequent pesticide residues.

The study looked at an unprecedented 343 peer-reviewed publications comparing the nutritional quality and safety of organic and conventional plant-based foods, including fruits, vegetables and grains. The study team applied sophisticated meta-analysis techniques to quantify differences between organic and non-organic foods.
