Why organic farming is important

What is organic farming?

The produce at TheVillagegGreenShop uses natural farming method where crops are grown without any pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other chemicals. It uses animal manure and plant based pesticides like pepper spray and other herbs to keep insects at bay and maintain the health and productivity of the soil.

Why is organic farming important?

Evidence shows that the use of fungicides, pesticides and other chemicals are extremely dangerous to our health and the health of our planet as the use of these chemicals release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and penetrate the soil and water system.

Organic farming is sustainable agriculture because it restores or builds the soil’s eco system, respects the natural environment and ensure the livelihood for farm families.

Pure milk

20130906_210658

We are delighted with the brand new look of our carabao’s milk but more than that it’s the quality, pureness and nutrition sealed in this new package design.  It comes in handy and easy-to-store food grade plastic container and tamper proof caps to ensure freshness and wholeness of the  milk.

Last week we gave away free samples to parents and children and we are glad they love the taste and longer shelf life.  Many thanks to those who sent their excellent feedback!

For those who enquired for extra bottles, you can place your order until Tuesday, that’s tomorrow, cut off is 12:00 nn so you can pick it up on the 15th September!  You may contact us at 0927 675 5199/villagegreenshop@btinternet.com if you would like to try first or subscribe.

Many thanks.
