Organic status

Everything i grow is from ORGANIC seed, grown in ORGANIC compost and in accordance with the regulations set out by the soil association (eg the farmyard manure which i use as a fertilizer). However I am not allowed to call it Organic because that would cost upwards of £500. For a small business like mine, thats an awful lot of carrots, so I have decided that its not worth becoming certified.
The nice Soil association lady on the phone agreed that it was a shame they didn't cater for 'micro-business' like mine any more (!) and kindly sent me all the regulation details through to follow anyway. So rest assured all potential customers out there, that it IS all organic, but you cant tell anyone and I cant call it that!
