Organic Farming

ACS Distance Education
Duration: 100 hours
Qualification: Statement of Attainment

Study organic farming and learn to farm animals or crops using organic, biodynamic, eco-farming techniques.

In the past organic farm production was often considered as being only for radicals or hippies. Now it is seen as a viable economic move – with benefits to the farm soil, to the environment, and to the purchasers of the products. An organic approach can contribute toward making a farm more financially viable in several ways.
  • First, it is a low input way of farming. You do not need to invest so much money in expensive chemicals and fertilisers. However, any declines in initial production are balanced against these reduced costs.
  • Second, it is less likely to result in land degradation than many other production methods; hence the long-term cost of sustaining production is less.
  • Thirdly, public demand for organic produce has markedly increased over recent years.

It is sustainable and can be quite profitable

Demand for organic produce has boomed over recent years and supermarkets from Australia to England now devote significant shelf space to organic produce, and organic certification schemes have emerged and flourished.
