What is sustainable farming?
Sustainable farming means producing food, fibre, plant or animal products without harming natural resources and land and considering social responsibilities such as working and living conditions of farmers and workers, the needs of rural communities, and health and safety of the consumer both in the present and the future.
The farming methods protect our biodiversity by maintaining suitable habitats for plants, animals and wildlife and encourages people to buy their food locally and in season.
Although it is more expensive and labour intensive than conventional farming, the principles and methods employed promote practises which co-exist with natural systems and help protect and enhance the environment.
