The Benefits to an Organic Diet

Posted: Updated:

Organic foods can be found at grocery stores and farmers markets across the country, but most organic products come with a hefty price tag.

Farmers who grow organic produce don't use conventional methods to fertilize and control weeds, so part of the reason why organic foods cost so much is because it's so labor intensive.

Organic farmers tell me any product labeled as organic must be USDA certified, and getting that certification comes with plenty of hard work. But farmers say it's worth it to them because there's no health concerns when it comes time to put the product out on the farm stand.

"We eat it ourselves and so do our children and grandchildren. And we have no fear about them contracting some weird condition because of chemicals," says Marvin Baker of North Star Farms.
