I buy local as opposed to organic.
Locally, I buy:
1/2 cow each year
11 gallons of raw milk per week
1/2 bushel from CSA
bacon, but I will be joining that CSA when there is an opening
I order from a co-op, so on the organic side, I buy:
some cheeses (so expensive)
white flour with wheat germ added back in
yogurt for starter
dirty dozen list
And I will buy organics at the grocery store if the regular item has HFCS in it. And unfortunately, that has become the biggest battle to keep that out of my house.
I read one label and HFCS was in the children's pain reliever. So, I need to look at medicine labels, too.
This stuff is everywhere. It is in Nutri-grain bars, Ritz crackers, Wheat Thins. C'mon. Really?
