Organic foods are foods making styles that was practised by farmers before the 1900's. Organic foods have to meet standards that are assessed and tested by organisations. A well known organisation for testing food is Soil Association. Organic foods are foods that use pesticides to the minimum and are observed very closely and controlled. Organic foods are productions of foods that are more 'natural'. Organic meat is made by keeping the animals in a certain way. No drug is given to any animals to produce organic meat. For example Chickens have to have a lot of sunlight and free to move around.
