With so many terms being thrown about in the world of organics we thought we would take a moment to look at what some of the common terms mean and what Certified Organic truly is and represents.
Organic can mean different things to different people, since organic products and principles look different according to where you live and how you perceive them.
We ask all these questions of our farmers and suppliers so that our customers don’t have to. All of our fresh and seasonal fruit and vegetables are either certified organic, biodynamic or spray-free.

Lemon and ginger have long been incorporated into warm beverages and herbal teas. This combination was traditionally used to soothe the digestive system, settle the stomach and relieve mild nausea. It was also thought to be a support to the immune system, making it an important winter wellness drink. These days, we know a lot more about each of the key ingredients and the benefits they can provide.

Eating seasonally not only tastes better, it also comes with many other benefits for your health, your budget and the environment.
The change of seasons not only marks the change of our wardrobes but a transition to an abundance of diverse new seasonal, freshly harvested produce we should be adding to our plates. Changing your food with the seasons ensures our bodies are properly nourished throughout the year by eating the best of what each season brings. As well as vitamins and minerals, fruit and veggies contain powerful phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are the natural compounds that give plant foods their unique flavours and bright colours.
