    Organic foods?

    Do you guys buy organic? I have a love hate relationship with it. It taste good but my wallet hates it.

    Sometimes I do and sometimes I do not, I was wondering if you guys had opinions on it.

    I am more afraid of gmo's than i am worried about organic. I buy it when my wallet will allow.

    I buy as local as possible. Most locavore farmers/ranchers/growers do organic or better. I'll pay a premium to get food from someone I have a chance of meeting at a gas station before I pay a premium for a government regulatory stamp.

    I do try to buy organic as much as possible, but more importantly, I try to buy local. If they are available in your community, look for a food coop in your city. Often times, after joining, the produce will be cheaper than you can buy in a grocery store, and you'll get a lot more input on what's doing well, as well as being able to talk to the people that grow your food.

    When I could afford it I did. Now just buy organic milk. Buying local is only an option in the summer. I do some but it is very inconvenient.

    for certain fruits and veggies i try to eat organic as much as possible, as i know them to be more tainted with unwanted junk. Such as Apples, Grapes, Celery, berries . Milk and eggs i also buy natural and organic where applicable

    It is also worth mentioning that there are some foods, the "dirty dozen" that are covered in pesticides and herbicides.

    Check this out:

    I used to handle a lot of herbicides, and sometimes at Kroger, I go to smell fruits to check for quality and I get smacked in the face with a recognizable fume. IME Strawberries, Chilean Grapes, and Apples are all the worst offenders for this.

    Most of the grocery stores I buy from here such as Kroger's and Whole Foods sell organic which I do buy. Food is the one thing I insist on being of great quality and don't skimp on.
