East Coast Organics
Organic farming (Environment)
East Coast Organics operates a biodynamic farm 10 miles south-east of Edinburgh. They produce a vast range of vegetables, salad, fruit and eggs and run their own ‘Eco-Box’ organic box scheme.
Organic agriculture recognises the relationship between our environment, our health and the food we eat. As well as high animal welfare standards, organics avoids the use of pesticides and chemical fertilisers and helps to revitalize the earth. And, because organic farming releases less greenhouse gases than non-organic farming, it means a smaller carbon footprint for the environment. Lending in this sector varies from dairy and meat, to forestry and fruit.
