In a perfect world, it would be that all food was ethically sourced and sustainably produced no matter where you went. Sadly, however, this is not the case. Over time, food has become increasingly processed, so much so that it is more difficult to find natural, pure and chemical-free food than ever.
Organic and chemical-free living is no longer a niche or taboo subject; it is a rapidly growing movement fuelled by consumers who have growing questions about conventional farming methods. Thankfully, over the past few years, consumers are becoming more health-conscious and have more of a say in the food they eat. Younger and older generations alike have found their voice. They are choosing to opt for organic, sustainably-farmed ingredients that positively impact their health and the environment around them. Of course, Cape Town, one of the country’s most progressive cities, is at the forefront of this innovation, and this is where The Urban Farmer comes in.
“Let food be thy medicine; and medicine be thy food.”– Hippocrates.
