Converting to organic meat is one of the easiest choices you’ll ever make.
The benefits are lengthy, varied and undeniable – and greatly outweigh the cost of spending a couple of dollars more at the checkout.
In fact, picking the top five reasons why organic meat is so great out of the myriad of benefits is probably the hardest part, but here’s an attempt to explain why once you go organic, you’ll never go back.
There’s almost nothing quite like a well-cooked steak at the end of hard day, or even rare, if you prefer.
Can you imagine that meal tasting even better? Probably not. So maybe it’s time you found out?
Research shows that if you make the change to an all organic diet, you can save yourself from eating up to two kilograms of additives every year. A big part of a balanced diet is meat, so switching to organic beef and lamb is a great place to start.
Not only does organic meat skip the bad stuff, it’s high in the good stuff too, with more nutrients than non-organic alternatives.
Any way we can reduce our environmental impact has benefits for everyone.
Organics don’t use pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers. Some of these chemicals can find their way into the water systems, which can do real damage to marine, animal and plant life.
One study found that if just 1,000 medium-sized farms switched from their usual production to an organic system, it would have the same environmental effects as taking 117,400 cars off the road every year.
If for nothing else, the high standards of animal welfare would be worth making the change by itself.
Everything is set up in a way that makes the process as natural as possible, with normal group sizes, plenty of pasture, shade and shelter, and no hormones or synthetic chemicals administered.
Peace of mind
One of the other great benefits of organic meats is the peace of mind you get from knowing that there are no Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) or ingredients.
From ‘paddock to plate’, these foods have no chemicals or additives and any meats with the organic labels are guaranteed to offer consumers the highest quality of standards and care.
