My partner and I had a conversation last night while preparing dinner - would we prefer local over organic? Farmer's market to support local businesses, or big supermarket for the organic version?
When I read the linked article, I liked what Gene had to say:
"Why not just tell one's customers exactly how you produce your food including when, if ever, you use non-organic materials. Then let the customer decide. This can work effectively on a small scale where a farmer is selling his or her own personal food to his own regular customers. As soon as the larger company is selling food from many sources, that kind of verification is not trustworthy to me no matter how many rules and regulations are supposed to be in effect."
