I always had this picture of a beautiful natural setting when I thought of #organic farming. That's how it is so often portrayed. The reality in the #EU is that #organic produce comes from food factories that have the same impact on the ecosystem as any other massive factory. The whole area is paved and roofed, the soil, insect, and bird life is wiped out, and the crops are grown in highly controlled, factory conditions. Watch the industry video to see the whole picture https://vimeo.com/183478317
@popolon if you read German, this article talks about the Bad Blumau project, which is both organic and with pesticides. https://kurier.at/genuss/erste-paradeiser-aus-thermal-glashaus-in-bad-blumau-geerntet/308.359.018
Of course, food factories are not only for organic food. There are plenty of food factories that grow produce with lots of pesticides. My point was that what regulators consider "organic" ("bio" in German) is often far from most people's conception of what organic means. Organic labeling is important, but it is not enough.
