Make organic the norm

A distinctive sign of a thriving and prosperous civilization is the methods applied to secure and maintain a steady and sufficient food supply for its people. Conventional farming and mass food production has been the way to go in the last century or two. On the other hand, there is the magical organic food, which is simply better.

It’s been noticed that there’s a rise in organic food production in the last 2-3 years. Moreover, the prices are even getting closer to “regular” food prices. That gives us a hint that it really looks like organic food can be the mainstream food on the shelves and produce sections in every major supermarket. That gives a marvelous advantage to the local farmers to embrace the organic farming and be excited about it, as they should be the suppliers for this market.

So, isn’t it time to go back to farm and eat clean and healthy? Isn’t it time to give local farmers a bigger stake of the cake? Isn’t it the time to give our lands and our planet a break from all those artificial fertilizers? Let’s all be part of this national transition!
