Why Choose Certified Organic?
Organic farmers have to keep meticulous records for a minimum of five years on every element of their farming. An independent certifying body inspects their farms and records annually to ensure that they meet strict Canadian organic standards. Organic meat comes from an animal that has not been fed anything grown with toxic or synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or fumigants; has not been given any kind of growth hormone, antibiotic or genetically engineered product; has been conceived by organically raised animals; and has been butchered and processed following organic regulations.
Organically raised animals are provided with living conditions and stocking rates appropriate to their behavioural requirements, high-quality diet of organically-produced feed, and ethical animal husbandry that facilitates low stress, promotes good health, and prevents disease. With organic farming, prevention of maladies is emphasized over treatment of them. When a disease or infection does strike an animal, it is nursed back to health without the use of chemical treatments.
- Organic farming strictly prohibits:
- Chemical pesticides, herbicides and fungicides in fields
- Chemical fertilizers in the fields
- Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)
- Growth hormones
- Drugs (including antibiotics)
- Animal by-products for feed
