Organic farming relies on the principle of managing naturally occurring biological cycles to provide soil fertility and control weeds, pests and diseases instead of using agrochemicals.
Managing an organic farm requires a holistic whole farm approach that encourages all the complex relationships between soils, micro-organisms, plants and animals to work together effectively alongside a stress free farmer to achieve a productive and sustainable farming system.
We work very closely with both the Soil Association and Organic Farmers and Growers to engage farmers with organic farming principles, EU regulation and the organic certification process required to farm organically and sell organically certified farm produce.
Abacus also provides professional consultancy services, organic expertise and support to OASIS (the Organic Advice, Support and Information Service).
This advice is delivered through a one to one farm review with an easy to use follow up report and set of recommendations which highlights areas for improvement for your organic farm business. We have listed just some of our organic services below, but please call, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your own specific requirements.
