Who are we ?

We are an organic farmer to produces pure organic vegetables that is totally chemical free.

  • We control weeds through manual removal by hand.

 

  • Our soil is fertilized using EM Bokashi and bio-organic compost.



How are we different from other organic farms ?

Although organic farming is now a regulated industry in some countries, the standards required by government authorities for obtaining the “organic” certification vary from country to country. Commonly, most organic certifications allow some chemicals and pesticides to be used, albeit at a level deemed “safe” by the relevant government authorities.

At ChemFreeVeg, we do not believe in playing roulette with the health of our fellow human beings. For this reason, there is no use of toxic or synthetic chemicals to control pests or fungus at our farm. All our pesticides and fungicides are direct plant and herb extracts (a process which we undertake ourselves to ensure they are genuinely toxic-free).

Similarly, we do not use animal dung (whether fresh, composted or in pellet form) as fertilizer to avoid any possible contamination of the vegetables grown at our farm. We believe that animal dung and animal waste may contain antibiotics, growth hormone and steroids given to the animals to control parasites and increase weight gain in them.

At ChemFreeVeg, we challenge ourselves to rise above the regulatory standard and farm toxin-free vegetables.

Worried about Antibiotics in Your Beef? Vegetables May Be No Better ! New research shows that they also may be ingesting them from vegetables, even ones grown on organic farms. http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/news/antibiotics-in-crops 

 

The U.S Department of Agriculture's ( USDA ) Agricultural Research Service ( ARS ) has pinpointed a major source of arsenic contamination in the environment -- poultry litter. Commercial poultry producers often supplement chicken feed with roxarsone, an arsenic-based food additive, in order to bulk them up and prevent parasites from forming in their systems. But this toxic ends up contaminating local water supplies and crops field. http://www.naturalnews.com/029517_poultry_arsenic.html 

 

Many organic producers use poultry litter - fresh, composted, or as pellets - as a fertilizer and source of organic matter. Much of this litter comes from commercial broiler operations, which use arsenic as a feed additive to control parasites and increase weight gain. Most of this arsenic does not accumulate in the poultry meat, but is excreted by the birds. As a result, almost 90% of the arsenic fed to poultry ends up in the litter. Because this heavy metal has the potential to build up in the soil, cause health problem for farm workers and produce consumers, and be transported to adjacent lakes or streams, many organic farmers and their certifiers are concern that using commercial poultry litter is not compliant with the National Organic Standard........http://attra.ncat.org/attra-pub/PDF/arsenic_poultry_litter.pdf 

 

New research shows that the drugs and contaminants that often contaminant sewage sludge that is used as fertilizer can be taken up by the plants grown in fertilized fields and gardens. Also called 'biosolids' these fertilizers are regularly applied to agricultural fields and are sometimes packaged as organic soil fertilizers sold in home improvement stores. The results raise significant public health concerns about use of biosolids on croplands and in gardens used to grow produce for consumption. http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/newscience/soy-plants-accumulate-drugs-antibacterials-from-biosolids
