WHAT IS ORGANIC FARMING

Ecological, organic or biological farming is a system to cultivate an autonomous agricultural holding based on the optimum use of natural resources, without using synthetic chemical products or genetically modified organisms (GMOs) –neither for fertilizer nor in order to combat plagues —, achieving to obtain in this way organic food and at the same time conserving the fertility of the land and respecting the environment. All of this in a sustainable and balanced way.

The main objectives of organic farming are obtaining healthy food, of greater nutritive quality, without the presence of chemical synthesis substances and obtained using sustainable procedures. This type of agriculture is a global management system of the production, which increases and raises the health of the agrosystems, including the biodiversity, the biological cycles and the biological activity of the land. This is achieved by applying, whenever possible, agronomic, biological and mechanical methods, in contrast to the use of synthetic materials in order to carry out any specific function of the system. This form of production, apart from contemplating the ecological aspect, includes as part of its philosophy, the improvement of the living conditions of those who use it, in such a way that its objective sticks to achieving the comprehensive sustainability of the system of agricultural production, this is to say constituting itself as a social, ecological and economically sustainable agrosystem.
