What is the future for organic farming?

There are Organic Action plans for England, Wales and Scotland and a European Organic Action Plan has just been published. They set out targets for increasing organic production and encouraging more consumer interest in organic food. With healthy eating becoming more of a feature of the government's agenda, the provision of organic food in schools and hospitals is increasing.  Some bigger food companies and supermarkets are investing in new organic products as in some areas, demand for organic food still out-strips supply, particularly in proportion to the amount of organic imports we still rely upon.

How can I find out more about organic food and farming and be part of the organic future?

  • Ask for organic food when you visit shops and restaurants;
  • Visit farmers' markets and farm shops and ask questions about the organic food they sell;
  • Grow your own organic food and start a compost heap. It's the best way to ensure your food is free from pesticides;
  • Find out if there is an organic farm in your area which welcomes visitors and spend some time there
  • Become a member of The Soil Association and support its organic campaigns;
  • Consult the Organic Directory published by Green Books
