Bee BS: Organic Food (33) RE: BS: Organic Food 02 Oct 08

Right you are, Megan - people with low income and children to feed as well. Here, though, 'local and small' as opposed to specifically 'organic' is usually cheaper. When fruit or vegetables are being harvested here, most farmers/orchard owners have enough surplus that they sell it cheaply at farm markets or roadside, and there are many U-Pick operations, where fields or orchards are set aside for the public to pick their own and pay a lower price.

Large eggs here in the grocery store are over $3.00 a dozen. We had to insist our neighbour take $2.50 a dozen for her fresh extra large eggs from free range chickens, as we don't want her to end up in the red over the cost of chicken feed. She felt guilty charging more than $2.00 because she really enjoys having hens.
