The (de)evolution of farming

The ultimate agriculture

Here’s an article about the next thing better than organic farming — “veganic farming.”

Ever notice how we’re never satisfied? For a while we have the answers. Then it’s just not good enough anymore. Something better is needed. This is what I thought about as I was reading this article about veganic farming.

Much like certified organic farmers, veganic farmers use no synthetic chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or genetically modified ingredients. Veganic farmers take it to another level by not using any manures or slaughterhouse byproducts. They don’t even use organically approved pesticides.

So now some folks living out there on the bleeding edge have decided to take it one step further. Call it “beyond organic.” Can you see where we’re going with all this? Let me spell it out for you…

Conventional farming (chemicals will solve out problems)

Sustainable farming (fewer chemicals = less harm)

Organic farming (no chemicals, only natural inputs)

Veganic farming (fewer natural inputs = more purity)

What’s the next step? How about…

Hunting and gathering (no inputs, totally natural, lots of exercise)
