On January 24, 2013, Colle Farmers Market, a community for organic farmers and organic food enthusiasts, looks to the future of organic farming as reports on organic farming produce positive growth.

In a report published by Eco-Business, according to the Worldwatch Institute, “organic farming has the potential to contribute to sustainable food security in the developing countries by improving nutrition intake and sustaining livelihoods in rural areas, while simultaneously reducing vulnerability to climate change and enhancing biodiversity.” Eco-Business reports that the global land area of organic farms has expanded to 37 million hectares since 1999.

According to the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements, “organic agriculture is a production system that relies on ecological processes, such as waste recycling, rather than the use of synthetic inputs, such as chemical fertilizers and pesticides.”

“Although organic agriculture often produces lower yields on land that has recently been farmed conventionally, it can outperform conventional practices—especially in times of drought—when the land has been farmed organically for a longer time,” states Laura Reynolds, a researcher with Worldwatch’s Food and Agriculture Program.
“Conventional agricultural practices often degrade the environment over both the long and short term through soil erosion, excessive water extraction, and biodiversity loss.”

Colle Farmers Market is part of the organic movement to bring organic farming to the global community. As an advocate of organic farming, Colle Farmers Market recognizes the impressive growth of the organic community and hopes for a complete change in the industry. Colle Farmers Market wants to play a larger part of the organic movement and looks forward to an organic farming future.

Colle is an E-Commerce enabled farmers market community that is passionate about sustainable consumption and responsible conservation. The Colle movement is dedicated to connecting natural product vendors, organic farmers and all people who are living an organic and natural lifestyle with the ultimate goal of using more sustainable farming and consumerism.
