Organic Farmers Giving up and Going Non-Organic

In Year 7 Geography we debate the merits of Organic Farming versus the costs to consumers (the people purchasing the organic food), but now there is something else to consider, the cost to the farmers themselves.


An article in The Guardian explains how some farmers who up until now have kept their farms organic are having to switch back to non-organic, by buying non-organic feed for their animals, because the costs are too high. They also blame the Soil Association who have been criticised for not supporting their organic farmers enough.

Do you ever buy or eat organic?
