THINK ABOUT FOOD
Organic food is food produced by methods that comply with the standards of organic farming. Standards vary worldwide, but organic farming features practices that cycle resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity. Organizations regulating organic products may restrict the use of certain pesticides and fertilizers in the farming methods used to produce such products. Organic foods typically are not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents, or synthetic food additives.
From an environmental perspective, fertilizing, overproduction, and the use of pesticides in conventional farming negatively affect ecosystems, biodiversity, groundwater, and drinking water supplies. These environmental and health issues are intended to be minimized or avoided in organic farming.
Organic food is safer and healthier to eat than conventional food.
Organic agriculture has a higher production costs and lower yields, higher labor costs, and higher consumer prices as compared to conventional farming methods.
We openly admit that for logistical and financial reasons we cannot always fall back on products that meet the above criteria. We therefore also buy in supermarkets or have them delivered by middlemen. These are compromises that we consciously make, and which we constantly discuss and try to shape. Ultimately, it is important to us that the food at our place is not too expensive and remains affordable for everyone. Here we try to find a balanced and coherent compromise and to offer the best possible quality at a reasonable price, while incorporating the highest possible proportion of sustainable products.
We try our best to use Organic products, but, it could be difficult to always get fresh organic Products like Ginger and Lime. Also the Eggs, if possible we get the local ones, but they might not be 100 % organic. But better than the industrial ones, wich we can not use. We would not label it organic.

bib shop was an it-place in Ios in the seventies and early eighties. Created by my mother, she designed each winter a collection of simple and sophisticated dresses, skirts and tops, all out of the same thin cotton fabric, dyed in beautiful colours and sold in summer on Ios.
Creating the garden cafe with it's sunset bar, meant to me also reopening bib, with this beautiful heritage.
