The Organic Feed Company provides a range of feeds made from organically grown, agricultural ingredients for a variety of animals.
Whether you are converting your smallholding to organic or would simply prefer tasty, organic eggs from your back garden hens, then The Organic Feed Company has a product for you. Using only the finest ingredients, The Organic Feed Company produces nutritionally balanced feeds with full Soil Association approval, ensuring quality and traceability throughout. Exceeding Soil Association standards, the Organic Feed Company was one of the first organic animal feed producers to ensure 100% organic agricultural ingredients are used.
Organic products are no longer a fad favoured only by a select few, but a way of ensuring the use of healthy, traceable and sustainable ingredients in your animal’s feed. People choose to go organic for many different reasons ranging from health concerns to the environment:
Many believe that the use of chemicals in food production can be harmful to health and also have concerns regarding the rising levels of chemicals which they are exposed to on a daily basis. The stringent practices and certification behind organic animal feeds ensures that no chemicals are used. For anyone wanting confidence that any eggs, milk or meat produced is purely organic, then feeding The Organic Feed Company products, combined with organic husbandry and land practices will ensure that any produce is truly chemical free!
The strict guidelines governing organic farming ensures that any negative impact on the environment from food production is greatly reduced. Soil is the key tool for organic farming and its balance can easily be upset by the use of chemicals. The use of natural fertilisers such as manure, rather than chemicals ensures high nutrient levels in the soil without upsetting the delicate balance of our planet. Many believe that organic farming can help to reduce the loss of species which can be caused by the widespread use of chemicals. Bio-diversity is of crucial importance to ensure a stable environment as the loss of species can affect the delicate balance of our planet.
Organic Food Tastes Great!
Many people choose organic food because they believe it tastes better than non-organic. As no artificial growth promoters are used in any of the Organic Feed Company products, animals grow at a slower rate which is believed to make their meat or other products such as eggs richer in flavour.
Working alongside the Soil Association and the Vegetarian Society, the full range has been formulated with absolutely no synthetic ingredients, ensuring the use of chemical free products at every stage.
Not all organic feeds are the same… so what makes The Organic Feed Company different?
The company works very closely with the Soil Association, the Vegetarian Society, DEFRA and a wide number of food standards agencies including UFAS. They strive to not just follow guidelines set out by these organisations, but to pioneer new standards by constantly exceeding expectations.
NEVER use in-conversion ingredients
Some organic feeds could contain up to 30% of in-conversion ingredients? Land is required to be farmed organically for several years before it can truly be described as organic, however, after the first year, produce from this land can be labelled as ‘in-conversion’ and included in feeds for organic use. The Organic Feed Company only use ingredients farmed from organic land ensuring there are no chemical residues.
NEVER use non-organic ingredients
Some organic feeds could contain up to 5% of non-organic ingredients? This 5% could include extremely concentrated protein sources such as Prairie Meal or Potato Protein, both of which are extracted dried by-products from the manufacturing process of starch. The Organic Feed Company only ever uses 100% organic agricultural ingredients so you can rest assured that these feeds are truly organic.
