local, organic, or conventional?
Monday, April 9, 2012
buying produce got complicated. let's break it down.
organic- your produce made a vow to never use drugs at any point in his life cycle.
local- your produce is using drugs, probably not as often, and he's doing it somewhere near you.
conventional- your produce is a user.
just because it's local doesn't mean it's organic. talk to your growers at the farmers market and ask how your produce is raised.
