Weekly Photo Challenge (free spirit)

With the theme “Free Spirit” for this Weekly Photo Challenge,
maybe it’s natural to think of ecology farming
it should be a very sympathetic spirit, free of many of the things
which makes life more dangerous to eat, wearing or just live in
the idea is many places sold as very colorful
bright clear colors, systematic order – at least in commercials
but many are so disappointed when they see the ecology farming
because they often see the colors as pale and as things are in non-systematic order.

It gives doubts among consumers
if it really is organic
because the most important thing is trust
from consumers to producers.

Many buy so, if possible, directly from the ecology farmer
because they so “know” the sphere of his farming.
(myself too)

But their image could perhaps need a lift
too often it is such that if you pass a conventionally agricultural
where the farmer is ‘lazy’ so there are plenty of weeds
so people think immediately that this is an ecology farming.

But weeds are not equal to ecology farming.

(the subject of this photo is an ecology farming)

14 tanker om “Weekly Photo Challenge (free spirit)

  1. Buying ecological groceries is a matter of trust. If you buy them at the farm, you only have to trust the farmer. If you buy them in a large supermarket, you have to trust both them and their entire supply chain. In Denmark I feel reasonably certain that we can trust ecological products to really BE ecological.

    I usually don’t bother to buy ecological products, with one exception: I gladly pay a little extra for ecological eggs. I like to believe that the hens who laid the eggs are living a good and natural life.

      Agree – animal welfare is also the most important for me – chickens, hens and pigs can easily be done better – I buy all meat from places I know – but everybody can not do so. I know…

  2. Yo no tengo esa posibilidad, por aquí se pueden comprar en los grandes almacenes, y no me fío del todo, pero tengo una vecina que si vende algunas cosas y las compro y el sabor de los huevos, tomates, pimientos etc. es totalmente distinto, tienes mucha suerte de poder hacerte con estos productos aunque es verdad que son mucho mas feos jajajajaja, besos

      No it isn’t always easy to keep an eye on ecology farming if one doesn’t live close to them – so it’s a matter of trust – and yes non-ecology often looks better – about the taste, don’t know if blind test will discover a better taste or it’s more faith… 😉

  3. A very interesting subjects. I trust my own vegetables (sorry there are so few), I trust norwegian produce which is organic, but the ones imported from big companies; I am not so sure. There is a lot of fraud when it comes to food, especially from the food industry.

      Agree the ones imported from big companies and handle by many people are not easy to know for sure if they can be trusted – the local farmer you can watch easily… 😉

      Thanks, appreciates… 😉

      Agree – consumers especially in the larger cities are unable to control
      – which is only a matter of trust, maybe it’s enough maybe not… 😉
