One organic is a little organic delivery company with big ideas. Based in North London, Barney started modestly back in 2014, supplying vegetables to friends and family around Alexandra Palace N22. Now delivering weekly throughout the capital, to provide a friendly informal service supplying seasonal boxes of organic fruit, veg, eggs and bread to homes and business.

We have a monthly market stall at Myddleton Road in lovely Bounds Green where you can come and say hi, perhaps purchase some interesting vegetables or biodynamic chicken and duck eggs.
Fairtrade, free-range, organic and biodynamic – there are many terms to look out for in 2017 and it is confusing knowing what’s best for you and your family. When you choose organic, you choose products that have been grown and produced to the highest animal welfare and environmental standards. This means less pesticides, no artificial additives or preservatives and absolutely no GM (genetically modified).
All organic produce comes from reliable farms and sources. When you see organic certification, you know the products have met the strict requirements defining what farmers and manufacturers can and can’t do during production. All organic suppliers are inspected at least once a year and the standards for organic food are always high. Getting organic certification is not straight forward so when you buy organic you know what you’re eating can be trusted.

Organic means growing with nature and a more sustainable management of the land, helping our environment to support biodiversity. From cream to carrots, when you choose organic Foods, Drinks, Beauty or Textiles; you choose products that encourage a better world.
Intensive agriculture and monocropping causes soil erosion, loss of habitats and chemical run-off into water systems, leaving some weeds and insects resistant to the chemicals. It is oil heavy and relies on synthetic or petroleum-based pesticides and fertilizers, unlike Organic farming.
By practicing traditional techniques like crop rotation and using a fraction of the oil, organic farming significantly reduces water and soil contamination. Turning back the clock to before the industrial revolution, to smaller farms and more wildlife. Less transportation and imported food and, a virtuous outlook.
