Organic?

I was reading another post, people were talking about organic foods, and I don't know a whole lot about organic food. I do, however, try to buy from local farmers, because I like to spend my money locally. So, I got to thinking, the milk I get in the glass 1/2 gal bottles from a local dairy farm, the produce I buy at the farmers market.... are they considered organic?

  • Sometimes... If they feed their cows good food that doesn't have any pestisides or artificial ingredients then it could be organic. Buying from the farmers market you never know... fresh is always better than frozen or canned. if you buy from a larger store, they will usually have it marked organic.

  • They are not legally considered organic unless the have the USDA label. However, many local farmers (but not all) do grow and raise livestock according to organic standards, they just cant afford to get certified. You should ask how they raise their livestock or what kind of pesticide control they use on their produce.

  • Not unless it says Organic. Organic means thatthey don't use anti-botics, hormones, pesticides etc. You can google to get more info.
