Organic Farming

Non-organic food production promotes the use of pesticides and chemicals which can pollute water and the environment by making their way into the food chain. Many pesticides don’t just kill the target pest, they can affect other wildlife by contaminating watercourses or disrupting ecosystems.

In contrast, Organic farming doesn’t allow any synthetic pesticides and herbicides. Research suggests that if all UK farming was organic, pesticide use would drop by 98%! Meaning that organic farms are a haven for wildlife.


In organic farming, natural alternatives are used to control pests and disease. Including crop rotations, encouraging natural predators, and good soil will promote better, healthy and pest free crops.
Organic farmers are allowed to use just 15 pesticides, originating from natural ingredients including citronella and clove oil, but they can only be used under very restricted circumstances.
