Organic food is most commonly mistaken as vegetarian food and is tasteless. But the truth is anyone can enjoy it! It is only called organic because of the fact that it is almost 95% free from any chemicals, pesticides, preservatives, etc., and is produced in environmental- and animal-friendly farming methods. Many organic farms throughout the Philippines are now opened to the public and offers a full menu of organic foods - some even provide workshops and overnight accommodations!
