‘Farmer Eddie’ Ferreira has added another dimension to the orchards of The Soga (Sundays Organic Growers Association) group of certified organic citrus farms with his hens.
Eddie and Johnny Ferreira are brothers who through a series of health and life challenges developed a passion for healthy living through healthy food. After the pain of losing their sister to a cancer rather swiftly, the urge to farm healthier food divorced from the chemical reality of modern agriculture developed, and the courage of following heart and belief no matter the cost.
Eddie warmly describes the flood of relief when he got his first certificate back that confirmed the feed to be entirely non-GM, always a nerve racking time for a committed farmer as GMO’s contaminate so much of life, a source of great misery and turmoil for the organic hearts and souls amongst us. It isn’t easy to get a 100% pass on non-GM input and for this reason it is the ultimate confirmation that your feed sourcing was successful. This is a very proud moment for organic farmers like Eddie who put so much into making sure that their eggs are ready for organic certification.
