Many people say organic foods taste better and are healthier for the environment, but you may be asking what is “organic?” The term “organic” refers to the way that farmers grow and process agricultural products, such as fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy products and meat. During the growing process, farmers do not use conventional methods to fertilize, control weeds or prevent livestock disease. For example, instead of using chemical weed killers, organic farmers may conduct more sophisticated crop rotations and spread mulch or manure to keep weeds at bay. These organic practices encourage soil and water conservation and reduce pollution. For a complete explanation, along with a list of key differences between conventional farming and organic farming, visit the Mayo Clinic online.
