A new organic wave hits the MedArchitecture Art Bconnectedmallorca Interior Design Real Estate
A new organic wave in the food industry his the Mediterranean as there is a growing trend in the world toward organic and sustainable agriculture, and more awareness towards healthy eating. We know that many produce nowadays has been covered in fertilizers or induced with antibiotics which is causing diseases. Because of this there has been an increasing presence of individual farms that are producing organic options where you can than ever.
Organic produce farmers have to be more vigilant, antibiotic use is severely limited if used at all, the regulations if you want to be named as organic, disallows any use of chemical pesticides and fertilisers for a minimum of three years. The animals must be free-range, and have lived with plenty of fresh air and fed only organically certified food.
Mallorca has many more local organic producers across the island providing us with natural produce where you can go along and pick your choice.
There are also however new experiences arriving in Mallorca & Ibiza where the organic farmers create this incredible experience where you can go along and have a completely natural and seasonal meal.
