There’s a dirty little secret in some organic fruit orchards.

That juicy apple or pear that you just paid triple the price for may have been sprayed with antibiotics.

Yep – that’s right. The USDA has approved “new options for organic producers and processors

I consider "organic" a gimmick that will con yuppies into paying 3 times what it's worth.

YEP!! Having been raised on a farm and seeing how it is practically impossible to raise anything truly organic, I refuse to buy any of the grossly overpriced organic produce.

It's just a label. Organic honey for example.....do they pen the bees up so they only gather nectar from flowers that are grown totally naturally?

Hunters and fishermen have been eating organic meat for years.
With all the deer, turkey, and fish my boys eat I tell people they are free-range.

But the deer eat soybeans and food plots that are fertilized and sprayed with every chemical we can get our hands on to kill weeds and bugs.... I don't think it's possible to eat truly organic anything anymore.
