Know Where Your Food Comes From with Eversfield Organic: March 2021 #Gifted
We should care about not only what we eat, but also the providence of our food. Having a healthy transparent food relationship and understanding the farming process shows care, respect and an appreciation for how our food goes from farm to plate.
Ellacott farm located in the Devon village of Bratton Clovelly on the edge of Dartmoor is the home of the amazing Eversfield Organic founded by Mark.
The farmland had suffered the effects from years of intensive farming, so Mark with the help of his family dedicated and devoted all their energies and efforts into nurturing the farm back to an abundance of natural healthiness just as nature intended.
Two years later after laying fencing, replanting miles and miles of hedgerow and impressively planting over 30,000 trees the farm was given organic certification and is 100% traceable.
Now Eversfield Organic has seen continued growth and produces a whole range of fabulous foodie goodies including their fresh fruit and vegetable boxes, that are delivered direct to your door, perfect for delicious and delightful meals at home.
Organic is better for our planet and people, Eversfield use sustainable organic farming measures and are continually working to reduce their environmental impacts by reducing waste, you can even return your packaging for free!
Using organic farming systems eliminate all synthetic and petroleum-based pesticides and fertilisers which reduces soil and water contamination helping to achieve a natural balance so that nature and wildlife can exist and thrive alongside commercial organic farming.
Soil is a non-renewable energy resource and healthy soils store high levels of carbon, so if all UK farming was converted to organic, more than 1.3 million tonnes of carbon could be stored in the soil each year, I think this says it all really.
Eating organic produce benefits our bodies too, as current research shows that eating organic produce provides a superior nutritional quality and reduces intake of pesticides, so clearly is the only choice for you and your family.
