Why Eat Organic Foods?.

We all eat food, and need it to survive. But in the last 50 years, research has shown that the food we eat may be hindering us, rather than helping us survive.

In simple terms:
The human body can only function, and do so properly, when it is healthy. The body stays in good health when it receives the nutrients it needs to maintain vitality, and these nutrients come from the food we eat.

The problem:
Some of the ‘healthiest foods’, i.e. the foods highest in essential nutrients, are familiar, affordable and great tasting, but can be artificially, chemically, synthetically and genetically produced. As a result, the human body is being exposed to dangerous chemicals that can cause serious harm. And that’s the dilemma. But it doesn’t have to be a dilemma any longer.

The solution:
Organic foods. What are they? The term ‘organic food’ has two meanings, a popular meaning and a legal meaning. Firstly, the popular, customary meaning of organic foods refers simply to all foods that are produced naturally.

One might think that, according to this definition, all food must be organic since all food is derived from some natural source, i.e. a plant or animal. But this is where the second definition, the legal definition, of organic food makes a clear distinction between organic and other types of food.

According to the legal definition, organic food is food from plants and animals that is produced without the use of synthetic fertilizers, artificial pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, growth hormones, feed additives or genetically modified organisms (GMO’s).

All of the food produced here at Janssen Farms meets this strict definition. We feed our poultry only certified organic food, which is free of antibiotics, hormones and GMO’s. And our poultry free-ranges on land free of pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers. So you can be assured that when you eat our delicious poultry, it’s also helping to maintain your health!
