What does Certified Organic mean?
Canadian farmers are always striving for more regenerative farming practices. Some follow a regulated process on their farms so they can become certified organic producers. So what are the differences when it comes to farmers who choose organic practices but aren’t certified, and those who choose to go through the processes required to become a certified organic Canadian producer?
What’s the Deal with Organic Turkeys?
2.4 million whole turkeys were purchased in Canada during the Christmas season of 2018. With all this buzz around Christmas turkeys, there are plenty of options when it comes to buying one. You can head to your local grocery store and pick up a frozen one, or visit a butcher shop or market to find farm-fresh turkeys. And you could look for a Canada organic turkey at any of those places.
Do Animals Wear Winter Coats?
When you think about organic livestock farming, you might immediately imagine a herd of cattle grazing peacefully in a grassy field. In the sunny Canadian summer, this might be exactly what you stumble across. Unlimited access to the outdoors and plenty of fresh grazing pasture is ideal for organic livestock. How do organic farmers keep their livestock safe throughout the cold, harsh winter months?

How does this affect you?
