Organic Label Not Worth the Paper it’s Printed On

Rod posts about a WaPo piece on the joke that is the USDA Certified Organic label.  People are paying a premium for “organic” products that are not organic at all.  This just reinforces the need to localize the food system so that people can actually know the people producing their food.  You might still get something that you aren’t expecting, but I like my chances of getting quality food that is what I’m expecting from the local farmer a lot better than from some industrial supplier with an “Organic” label.
