Summary Organic Food

Postby Parvaneh » Wed Jan 21, 2015 10:30 am

Matin Abad Camp takes pride in the highest standard of service and cuisine. Meals, which include traditional Persian dishes, are served in an authentic over-sized pan.

Food and supplies are mostly the product of the organic farm of the Camp and we provide this remote region with opportunities for economic growth through responsible tourism. Availability of produce varies depending on the season. However, you can expect that we will provide the best available selection of local dishes and traditional specialties for the Western palate. We can also make special arrangements for most dietary needs�please contact us to discuss your specific requirements. Purely organic food like local chicken, camel meat and milk are also available.

Organic agriculture is the oldest form of agriculture on earth. Farming without the use of petroleum-based chemicals (fertilizers and pesticides) was the sole option for farmers until post-World War II. The war brought with it technologies that were useful for agricultural production. These technical advances since WWII have resulted in significant economic benefits as well as environmental and social detriments. Organic agriculture seeks to utilize those advances that consistently yield benefits (new varieties of crops; more efficient machinery) while discarding those methods that have led to negative impacts on society and the environment, such as pesticide pollution and insect pest resistance. Instead of using synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, organic farmers utilize crop rotations, cover crops, and natural-based products to maintain or enhance soil fertility
Pros and cons of organic food
The benefits of organic food are that these foods are hopefully (we have to trust the farmers on this) grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers. Thus the difference would be that these foods are less contaminated by the above mentioned chemicals.
The benefits of organic foods
Organic farming lowers water pollution and builds soil fertility.
By eating organic food, you cut down on the chemical load that you take in, as it contains no insecticides, pesticides, growth hormones, antibiotics, fertilizers and toxic artificial additives, flavorings, colorings and preservatives.
The food reaches you in a natural state with its nutrient content intact.
Organic food is often fresher than non-organic food, because it has no preservatives so it is rushed straight to the shops.
Natural food as more flavor

The downside
They are more expensive.
Organic produce must be thoroughly washed because it may be contaminated by improperly composted animal fertilizer.
Organic products are also not always available. This is because organic farmers rely entirely on natural cycles. Floods, droughts and pest infestations can ruin the entire crop. Conventional farmers can artificially extend the natural seasonality of their fruits and vegetables, so that you get oranges in summer and avocado pears all year round.
