Organic Services

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).
