    Thank you for the information. I have always wondered what was the difference in organic compared to other food grown. Plus now I see why the price is much different. I do realize the health benefits of eating this way. I see the importance of also inculcating this type of eating in children early in life. When I think about it I would imagine even though it is much more expensive to eat this way it would be far more cheaper than medical bills for consequences of a poor diet. Thank for this information and I look forward to future information you provide.

      Hi Mac, thank you for reading my post and sharing your comment. I agree with you, it’s better for kids to eat healthy at an early age.

      I beleive the more people buys organic the more pricing will become affordable. The demand will be greather so the producer will deliver more good products.

        Good News! There is now a company in Quebec, Canada, that is now producing organics veggies in big fields. That will lower the cost of our purchases. The industry is changing for better production.
