Organic Farm Sasov - Josef Sklenar

Organic Farm Sasov, eighteen years of tradition

What is Organic Agriculture?

It is the husbandry with no use of any artificial (chemical) products for plant protection and fertilising. Livestock is kept on the open pasture and no growth stimulators, hormonal formulas or genetic modified organisms are used.

Organic farming utilises traditional methods (e.g. crop variety and closed nutrient cycle) in combination with use of modern mechanisation and new technologies. Organic farms are under regime of inspections on regular yearly base. Products made under special conditions are marked as "BIO" organic products or organic food.

Positives of Organic husbandry

  • Improvement of the food/public health quality
  • Long term profitability
  • Environmental friendly (locally and also globally)
  • Savings of energies and non renewable sources
  • Reduction of overproduction by limited use of intensifiers together with preservation of income level for agricultural production
  • Introduction of new perspective product “Bio-Food” on the market
  • It helps maintains the nature spirit of the land and stabilise the population (more human labour demands, suitable for highlands and smaller family farms)

Closed Circle balanced husbandry

Organic husbandry is very advanced and productive way of agricultural production based on thousands years of experience of our predecessors. Organic husbandry respects dependencies and rules of nature. It allows production of highly valuable food with no use of artificial substances. Organic Farming helps to preserve and restore nature.
