In agriculture, the word organic has come to mean “foodstuff grown or raised without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides or hormones.” According to the USDA National Organic Standard Board, organic agriculture:

  • Is an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles, and soil biological activity;
  • Is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on management practices that restore, maintain or enhance ecological harmony;
  • Has a primary goal of optimizing the health and productivity of interdependent communities of soil life, plants, animals and people.
