Q) What is Organic Farming and how is it good for you?

a) Organic agriculture is a production system that regenerates the health of soils, ecosystems, and people.
Organic is a vision for working and living in harmony with nature. The result is healthy soil, which grows healthy plants, which make for healthy people. By abstaining from synthetic inputs and encouraging natural systems, organic farmers help create a better future for people, animals, and the environment.
Organic farmers rely on natural processes, biodiversity, and cycles adapted to local conditions rather than the use of synthetic inputs like chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides. GMOs are not allowed in organic.
The essential difference between organic and conventional farming is that conventional farming relies on chemical intervention to fight pests and weeds and provide plant nutrition. That means synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. Organic farming relies on natural principles like biodiversity and composting instead to produce healthy, abundant food.
Importantly, “Organic production is not simply the avoidance of conventional chemical inputs, nor is it the substitution of natural inputs for synthetic ones. Organic farmers apply techniques first used thousands of years ago, such as crop rotations and the use of composted animal manures and green manure crops, in ways that are economically sustainable in today’s world. 
Conventional and organic farming methods have different consequences on the environment and people. Conventional agriculture causes increased greenhouse gas emissions, soil erosion, water pollution, and threatens human health. Organic farming has a smaller carbon footprint, conserves and builds soil health, replenishes natural ecosystems for cleaner water and air, all without toxic pesticide residues.

 

Q) Why does Organic Produce cost more?

a) Organic food is costly to produce because farmers can’t take the same shortcuts used in conventional farming, which relies on practices that are both unhealthy for us the consumers, as well as unsustainable for the environment.
Organic farmers don’t use genetically modified seeds. That whole “inserting the DNA of one species and putting it into another so we can hose it down with a ton of herbicide and pesticide and it won’t die” thing? Yeah, organic farmers can’t do that.
In case you haven’t heard, there’s a very heated debate going on about whether or not GMOs are safe. Here’s the thing that gets me: these “foods” were created in a lab and would never had otherwise existed in nature, yet we’re EATING them. Some of these “foods” have even been designed to produce their own pesticide, a mechanism that isn’t magically turned off once they’re plopped on your dinner plate. Furthermore, records show that GM crops are sprayed much more heavily with chemical pesticides and herbicides than their non-GM counterparts since these crops have been altered to withstand these chemicals. What you get, then, is not just a “food” that has been created in a lab, but one that has also been saturated in chemicals (or produces its own).
How appetizing.

Q) Are all your Bakes Healthy?

a) The term "Healthy” really depends on how one defines its. If Sweet treat are made with Pure, Unadulterated ingredients does it mean that you can have them every day?  or instead of Sugar one has used Jaggery, can you still eat it every day? No not really isn’t it, same goes with our baked goodies. According to me there is nothing called as Health Bakes (loads of Bakers are using this term and misleading consumers), yea there are “Healthier Options”, what that means is that we can use a mix of whole wheat and All-purpose flour in place of All-purpose flour alone or Jaggery in place of Sugar or Mixture of Millet flour and so on.
