I've been reading a lot about organic foods. We've already started buying mostly organic produce, but I'm finding out that it is probably more important for our animal products to be organic. I'm realizing how much I have to learn about all this, but I want to start making the change and not keep waiting. I'm mostly worried that we're going to spend so much more money. Does anyone have tips about how to start buying organic meat, dairy, and eggs? Where to buy them, etc? I'm thinking we'll start simple and just buy organic eggs and some chicken for this week, because I think chicken is probably the cheapest meat, even though if it's organic it will be more expensive. If we want to make this change, is it best to join a coop? I don't know anything about how to do this, so I'm going to start buying at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods, them look into coops in the area.
Also, isn't it true that food at a local farmer's market or coop might be local, but might not be organic, and even if I go to a local market, I have to search for specifically organic? I'd like to also eventually buy raw dairy, but I totally am clueless about how to do that, so I'll start with one thing at a time.
