What is organic production?

Organic farming, also known as biological or organic, is a way of cultivating and caring for the land, raising animals and preparing food in an environmentally-friendly way:

1.

Without toxic chemical products (manure, pesticides, herbicides, etc).

2.

Without genetically modified seed (the so-called transgenic or GMO).

3.

Without forcing the fertility or the animal feeding cycles.

The normative

Organic farming is regulated by a European normative (Reglamento (EC) 834/2007) that establishes standards for production, transformation, labeling and how these products should be controlled from the farm to the consumer.

The control can be carried out by public entities or private entities recognized as such in each Member State of the European Union.

Murcia and the organic production

The Region of Murcia has a great tradition in organic farming and has pioneered the production of fruits, vegetables, rice, grapes, almonds and cereals. Already in the seventies they began to apply this type of practice in some plots

The fabulous climate we enjoy and the quality of our soils along with the know-how of our farmers makes our Region an ideal place to develop Organic farming.
