Ecological Farming or more commonly known as Eco-Farming is a way of cultivating agriculture that places an emphasis on both the health of the environment and to the health of its consumers. Long before conventional and modern agricultural practices have been put into practice people had farmed in an eco-friendly way. People have been farming in an eco-friendly way dating back to the beginning of the Neolithic period.
The ease and convenience of the modern-day agriculture have produced crops at a higher yield but with some threats to both the farming area and to consumers. This has led many farmers to neglect traditional farming.
Besides producing healthy and safe-to-consume agriculture products, ecological farming also provides other benefits, such as minimized environmental pollution and contamination through agricultural activities, and maintenance of soil productivity and fertility in the long term. All of which add up to improved sustainable use of natural resources and of the environment.
