Welcome To West Country Organics

The organic food industry is a booming one, as more people begin to understand the benefits of eating unprocessed and naturally produced food. So what is organic food?

Many people attach their own definitions to the word, "organic." The reality is that organic food is produced mostly through natural means. For example, organically grown vegetables and fruits are not exposed to harmful pesticides. Additionally, organically grown food receives natural fertilizers. A lot of consumers are unaware that many of their grocery store bought vegetables contain trace amounts of chemicals used to kill insects. There is also a fast growing vegan trend, in part thanks to the many vegan options now widely available in restaurants, shops and online (like these amazing vegan cakes from a popular London based online cake shop, also known for their bespoke cakes), and veganism and organic ingredients/produce often go hand in hand.
