When choosing any meat to purchase, it is worth carrying out some research. There are a number of studies that suggest organic meat is a healthier option, containing less saturated fat and higher in omega- 3 fatty acids, which are good for your heart. There are also several other reasons why choosing organic meat is a good idea. They range from the contribution of organic farming to climate change, animal welfare and the use of pesticides and medicines used in the farming of conventional chickens, organic animals are only given antibiotics if absolutely necessary, rather than routinely, as they are in lower welfare systems to prevent spread of disease.
Organic meat is more expensive because when you pay for a certified organic product, you aren’t buying into a vague idea or a false promise. You’re buying into a promise that’s legislated, regulated, inspected, consistent and licensed. It’s a method of farming and food production that demands a lot of hard work and time, with less focus on yield, to allow animals to grow slowly to maturity, with minimal impact on the environment. Therefore, this is reflected in the price of all organic produce, not just organic meat.
