Organic farming is an agricultural system that does not use pesticides, nor synthetic chemical fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms, instead it uses methods that include products coming from plants or animals.
Organic farming’s aim is to respect the Human Being by offering 100% healthy products, free from chemical residues, and respect the environment with sustainable practices with positive impact on farming ecosystem.
The biodiversity refers to the variety of living organisms in the world and to the complex relationships between them and between those living beings and the environment.
In the Quinta Seis Marias, we promote the richness and variety of this world in its farm, because improving and maintaining biodiversity are essential for the balance of the land and the man who live in interdependence with all.
