Organic Food

Organic food: Good for you. Good for us.

October 2, 2017

You’re seeing the word “organic” appear on food, and people who are very aware of what they are putting in their bodies will usually prefer organic over conventionally grown products.  But, it goes beyond health benefits for you.  Organic food is better for our community.   When you choose organic, you are supporting farms that conserve water, reduce energy, and put fewer pesticides on the ground and water.  Animals that are raised for organic food are not given antibiotics, growth hormones, or animal byproducts.  It’s been shown that organic milk and meat have levels of certain nutrients up to 50% higher than conventional equivalents.  Frankly, organic food is going to be about as fresh as you can get… unless you live on an organic farm.  Fresher, better for you, and better for our environment.  We think you’ll be able to taste a difference when you pick up a half gallon of Organic Valley milk.  It’s only $5.99 with a $17 purchase.  Organic Valley is proud that the only thing added to their products is sun, grass, soil, and rain.
