Why Organic?

We are strictly organic hence the name Dillon Organic! We firmly believe that Organic is better for the planet as it enhances the health of the soils, water and air.

If Europe's farmland all followed the principles of Organic farming, agricultural emissions would drop by 40-50%. 

Organic farming therefore leads the way in sustainability:


Organic farming does not use artificial fertilisers, which cause environmental pollution, lead to disease in humans and animals but also heavily increase greenhouse gases by the way they are manufactured. Instead, organic farmers build and use compost for fertile soils.

Organic farming creates much healthier soils which store huge amounts of carbon and therefore help in our fight against climate change. According to the Soil Association, there are 2,500 billion tonnes of Carbon stored in the worlds soils!! 

Organic farming is also important for maintaining biodiversity and are havens for wildlife such as birds, butterflies and bees. 

The Soil Association states that "insect and bird life is 50% more abundant on organic farms, and there are around 75% more wild bees on organic farms". 

Finally, organic farming is safer for people as there are fewer pesticides, nutritionally different food, no GM ingredients, reduced use of antibiotics, and more resilient and sustainable farms.
