Why Choose Organic

Why Choose Organic

There are many reasons why you should choose organic. Organic farms use less energy than conventional farms with careful ecological management including using natural ecological balances to solve pest problems. It’s estimated that organic farms use 70% less energy than industrial farms.

Clayton’s Organic Beef is much leaner than conventional beef, so it has less fat and fewer calories. It has substantially higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which are also found abundantly in fish such as salmon, and relatively lower levels of omega-6 fatty acids.

Your body will thank you over and over again when you choose to eat organic foods!  Read more on the health benefits on our website, here: www.claytonsorganicbeef.com.au/why-organic/
