The Health Benefits of Freedmen Farms        

Organic food isn’t just a trend, it’s a conscious life choice.  Here’s why:

  1. Reduced Pesticide Exposure: Conventional produce often carries pesticide residues even after washing. In contrast, organic foods are virtually pesticide-free. Research suggests that pesticides may harm brain development, especially in children. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should consider eating organic foods as a precaution.Freedmen woman working as a store clerk
  2. Nutrient-Rich: Organic crops tend to have higher antioxidant capacity, polyphenols, and flavonoids. These compounds contribute to overall health and disease prevention.
  3. Environmental Impact: Organic farming practices prioritize soil health, biodiversity, and water conservation. By avoiding synthetic chemicals, organic farming reduces soil and water pollution, preserving these vital resources for future generations.
