At Unit we support the following farming methods:
Organic farming is a method of crop and livestock production that involves much more than choosing not to use pesticides, fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, antibiotics and growth hormones.
Organic production is a holistic system designed to optimize the productivity and fitness of diverse communities within the agro-ecosystem, including soil organisms, plants, livestock and people. The principal goal of organic production is to develop enterprises that are sustainable and harmonious with the environment.
DEMETER = BIODYNAMIC
Biodynamics is a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to farming, gardening, food, and nutrition. Biodynamic farms and gardens are inspired by the biodiversity of natural ecosystems and the uniqueness of each landscape. Diversity in domestic animals is also beneficial, as each animal species brings a different relationship to the land and unique quality of manure. The diversity of plant and animal life can be developed over time, starting with a few primary crops and one or two species of animals (even as small as earthworms or honeybees), and adding more species as the farm organism matures.
Due to its natural growing season performance organic food has higher nutritional value than conventional food.
- Organic produce contains fewer pesticides
- Organic food is often fresher because it doesn’t contain preservatives that make it last longer
- Organic farming is better for the environment
- Organically raised animals are NOT given antibiotics, growth hormones, or fed animal byproducts.
