A video tour of four organic farms will be available during the conference
During the conference you will have an opportunity to visit four organic farms in Latvia and to see how different and diverse organic farming can be.
“Indrāni” is a small organic farm, which is run by the family for three generations. Best known for syrups and jellies produced from 15 unusual plants, for instance, dandelion, red clover, and spruce needle. Their organic products are sold also in their own online store.
These farmers believe that working organically and taking care of home and land is a duty and they can’t imagine living in another way.
Organic family farm “Ķeveiti” offers visitors to taste a real organic meal prepared a live fire. This family is different from other organic farmers visited in this video tour, because they have recently moved from the city to the countryside to escape the bustle of the city, and to teach their children the real values of life.
Farmers are sure that working organically is the right way of living. They have proven it by working and living organically on their own organic farm and producing organic products.
