Organic Holidays

The Organic Research Centre and “Organic Holidays” Following the quite heated discussions just prior to Christmas over the floated notion of “Organic Holidays” or “Organic Lay-bys” some clarification of the Organic Research Centre stance on the issue is perhaps necessary. Of course, as individuals and as an organisation we fully understand and sympathise with the plight of producers caught in the economic downturn. Many are having a hard time and feel threatened. Discussions though amongst producers at our conference at Harper Adams College (January 6th and 7th) illustrated concern, understanding and sympathy for economic difficulty but they generally also concluded that “Get out of jail free” cards (further derogations) are not the answer.
