In essence, the term veganic really has little to do with veganism beyond the fact that veganically derived farming methods exclude animal based fertilizers. This is probably a good thing given that most farm animals are exposed to pesticides and other chemicals and routinely given antibiotics and other drugs either directly or via their feed. The residue of these chemicals would likely show up in their manure.
Even many organic farms which use animal remains or waste as fertilizer may inadvertently expose crops to hormones, antibiotics, pesticides and other chemical residues. You see, the manure used on an organic farm is not required to be from an organically raised animal (although some organic farms do go the extra mile to ensure this is the case).
As you can see, the reason for using only plant based fertilizers on a veganic farm is to keep pathogens and contaminants away from crops. It is not because this agricultural method would be appealing to vegans.
The truth is, the idea is appealing to vegans and non-vegans alike!
In order to control what goes into our microgreens, we only grow on coco coir, because soil usually contains added animal-based, or chemical fertilizers. To feed our microgreens, we only give them kelp or ocean minerals and filtered water.
