Originally Organic

The latest buzzword… organic. However, not all “organic” is the same. You’ve got certified organic, organic and natural.

 What do they all mean? What should you know about them to ensure you’re on the right track to a healthier lifestyle?

Most people, when it comes to the word organic are a bit perplexed – confused by it. However, you may be surprised to learn that the premise behind organic is very easy to comprehend.  Most people, regardless of whether they’re talking about organic or natural, often stick to the term organic. Organic based product means it’s just the way Mother Nature grew it. Think of it as growing vegetables in your garden and selling them to people at a lemonade stand your kids have designed. You grew them just as Nature had intended – the natural way without chemicals or pesticides added to them.

What Makes Organic Products Costlier Than Non-Organic Products?

Going organic doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg, but the prices of organic products are higher than non-organic products. You know, the products that are filled with chemicals and preservatives. However, people can’t understand why something organic has to cost so much more.

If something is all natural, then surely it would stand to reason that not adding things to it would cost less, right? Actually, think of it in this way: produce fields tend to be clumped together, which makes it harder to keep one field completely free of pesticides and chemicals.

Not all a farmer’s fields will be free of pesticides.

He may have one area be organic while another area is using pesticides. He has to ensure that the non organic field chemicals don’t travel onto the organic field, tainting the product. Certified Organic farmers tend to be stressed, knowing how expensive it can be to naturally produce products to meet that organic certification. They have a burden on them to meet the guidelines set forth if they are to sell the produce at organic prices.

This is why the prices to produce organic foods tends to be much more than you see with other products.

There is no doubt how popular organic produce is getting, but there is so much behind the process – the growing and promoting – that it’s more than just a labor of love for organic produce farmers.  Organic farmers feel that they should work with Mother Nature, not against “her.” They believe the Earth will take care of the produce grown as it did in times’ past, ensuring food grows like intended and resistance to pests.

With the costs it takes for farmers to create organic produce, the extra cost has to go somewhere, which is the consumer. If you want the best product available without any chemicals or added preservatives, then going organic (natural) will be the best decision you make. Just be prepared to pay a little more for it.
