Story and comic created by CCFamily.
Organic food refers to the food that is raised without artificial fertilizers or pesticides. They are free of antibiotics and growth hormones.
Organic farming is beneficial to the environment. It can make the soil more fertile and balance insect populations. It can also reduce pollution in the air, soil and water.
Organic food is more nutritious, safer to eat and better tasting. Organic food is grown, handled, and processed in a more environment-friendly way. But it requires more skill, time and labour to raise organic food, so it is more expensive!
