We are GETTING ready for...WAKE UP TO ORGANIC!

We are gearing up for Wake Up to Organic! As every year, we join forces with  independent shops across the UK to celebrate the beloved event, Wake Up to Organic. We invite everyone to swap at least one regular item for an organic product and visit one of the local shops offering a mini-organic breakfast!

This year, the event by UK ORGANIC is sponsored by Clearspring, Infinity Foods, and HayMax. A selection of their products will be available to sample at one of the 100 shops taking part (see list here).

We will also be running a fantastic competition: 3 lucky winners will receive a box full of organic products from Clearspring, Infinity Foods, and HayMax! Follow us on Instagram and check the T&Cs under the Wake Up to Organic competition post in early June for your chance to win!

So, how will you wake up to organic?

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE ORGANIC?

Organic means supporting wildlife

Organic farms are havens for wildlife and provide homes for bees, birds, and butterflies. On average, plant, insect and bird life is 50% more abundant on organic farms.

The highest standards of animal welfare

Animals raised organically enjoy the highest welfare standards available. Organic standards insist that animals are given plenty of space and fresh air, and that they are raised in conditions that suit their natural behaviour. Smaller flocks and herds, and more access to the outdoors means organic animals don't have to be routinely treated with antibiotics and wormers. Mutilations like beak-trimming to prevent the aggressive side effects of stress are also not needed or allowed.

Reduced exposure to pesticides

Choosing organic is an easy way to limit our exposure to pesticides, herbicides (weed killers) and many additives and preservatives. Organic farmers aim to create a natural balance between plants and animals to prevent pests, so that they don't need to rely on pesticides.

Enjoying food as it should be

Choosing organic means that you are supporting farming practices with a more traceable production process and you will always know what's in your food. Organic standards prohibit GM crops and ingredients, hydrogenated fats, and controversial artificial foods colours and preservatives.
