Evergreen Organics Belize utilizes techniques such as cover cropping, composting, crop rotations, soil tests, natural erosion blockades, natural habitat protection and the list goes on… to accomplish this. We use approved materials only as there is a strict set of guidelines on what we can use in our fields.
Most of us know someone affected by disease and if we assume the moniker “you are what you eat” is true, is it wise to consume produce treated with artificial chemicals meant to kill living things?

For farm-to-table cuisine, we need to stop the cycle of poisoning and over-feeding (ie. burning out) our soil and water, while organic farming builds the nutrient-rich soil by working to understand what it needs and then providing delicious food... over the long-term not products derived from petroleum.
We at Evergreen Organics Belize believe that as farmers we are stewards of the land who preserve the quality of the soil and water for future generations. Organic produce is grown using methods that promote soil fertility and a healthy farm ecosystem. No herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, synthetic fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms are used during the farming process or added to the food.
ORGANIC FARMING PRACTICES ARE SAFE
Pests are controlled through crop rotation, physical removal, and biological controls. Weeds are controlled by hand hoeing and mechanical cultivation. Fertility and soil structure are maintained through the introduction of organic matter, such as compost, and cover crops. Micro-organisms from this matter also break down minerals in the soil so that plants can absorb them and grow to be strong and healthy.
ORGANIC FOOD IS HEALTHY
Organic farming practices leave no toxic residues on your food! They do not pollute the air, water, or soil of your community, leaving the environment a healthier place for humans, animals, and plants to live. It builds richer, world-class soil (and food!) and It's healthier for the environment including precious water
FRESH ORGANIC PRODUCE IS DELICIOUS
Field ripened and freshly picked local organic produce is healthier because it contains more nutrients. Our produce goes right from the field to you, so there is no need for dangerous practices such as irradiation, and gassing are not needed to ripen it or keep it fresh. It's in demand... and growing!
We're passionate about organic produce, our growers, and our customers.
