What does 'in conversion' mean?

To become certified organic by the Soil Association, farmers have to take their land through a two year conversion process. During this period they cannot sell produce as organic, but can sell it as ‘in conversion’ which helps them through the process.  It means that we can help secure a market for smaller growers who have turned to organic farming while they wait for their produce to become certified. We have found that most customers strongly support this.

What does Organic mean?

Organic is a term defined by law. All our vegetables are grown under IOFGA certification, meaning that they are grown to exacting standards and stringently inspected. Vance's Farm in Kilrea is currently in organic conversion and will be certified in Jan 2019. The letter of organic law means avoiding pesticides and chemicals, but we see organic as going beyond this and being about working with nature rather than against it, ensuring the way we grow and operate is sustainable in every way.
