Before pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, antibiotics, synthetic hormones and genetically modified food was developed, the practice of organic farming was the rule, and not the exception.
As generations evolve, we look back to this practice and realise that nature does in fact produce for us what we need, in the exact quantities and at the right time of year to ensure our bodies, environments and livelihoods thrive.
We don't need to scientifically or chemically alter the production of our food, as Mother Nature got it right the first time.
With the evolution of commercial farming, sprawling and rapidly expanding populations and centralised and monopolistic methods of wholesale, a widening gap appears. We need a new distribution method that respects the diversity and capabilities of our growers, the adaptability and foresight of our processors and retailers, and the educated choices and desires of our customers.
Fair Organic Network Australia's aim is to respect and empower the grower, processor, retailer and customer through a new generation of organic distribution.
