This organic coffee has been produced by following approved methods of agriculture and handling. These methods integrate cultural, biological, and mechanical practices, including cycling of resources, promoting ecological balance, and conserving biodiversity. We not only care about the health of our coffee — we care about the health of the people who produce it and the environment in which it is grown. Sustainable agriculture is “an integrated system of plant and animal production practices that will last over the long term”.
These integrated practices include:
» Satisfying human food needs
» Enhancing environmental quality and the natural resource base upon which the agricultural economy depends
» Making the most efficient use of non-renewable resources and on-farm resources to integrate, where appropriate, natural biological cycles and controls
» Sustaining the economic viability of farm operations
» Enhancing the quality of life for farmers and society as a whole
