Cascadian Farm Organic - Educational Information "Eating Organic"

I am not a purist as far as food goes, but I DO love good food, grown well, and prepared well. The less that is "done" to the food from seed to table the better the food is for me and for you.  So I wanted to share the following information because I think it is valuable.

Be sure you let your kids watch the video. I just love the tractor and farming scenes in the video!

Organic Is Worth It

Now the following information was gleaned from the Cascadian website. Read on.....

By eating organic foods, you limit your exposure to synthetic insecticides, fungicides and herbicides, because organic farming avoids using these chemicals. Additionally by eating organic foods, you limit your intake of growth hormones and antibiotics, because organic meat and dairy farmers are prohibited from using hormones and antibiotics in organic livestock and dairy production. Finally by eating organic foods, you limit your intake of genetically modified foods because organic farmers cannot raise genetically modified crops or livestock or use production aids that are genetically modified.

The "organic" food label identifies food grown with practices that:

  • Do rely on natural biological systems for pest and weed control thus avoiding use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides and soil fumigants.
  • Do improve the quality and fertility of the soil
  • Do protect water quality
  • Do reduce soil erosion
  • Do reduce the impact of agriculture on our environment
  • Do produce high quality, great tasting food
  • Don't use genetic engineering
  • Don't use sewage sludge as fertilizer
DISCLOSURE: I am sharing the information contained in this blog article without compensation of any sort. The information was provided as a service to bloggers via email from Cascadian Farms. I chose to share it on my own volition.


  1. Organic food is a bit more costly but you know you are getting things that are so much better for your family. It is well worth it

  2. I like to purchase organic food whenever I can afford it. I do like Cascadian Farms products.

  3. I LOVE organic foods and I am totally against GMO. Farms like this one are so important.
