Random Topics - Organic Farming

Organic farming is the production of food without the use of synthetic pesticides, antibiotics, and hormones. Genetically modified foods do not qualify as organic, while non-organic pesticides are only used as a last resort. Some pros of organic farming are the reduction of the amounts of chemicals released into the environment, maintaining a sustainable environment, and less waste. Some cons of organic farming are higher prices and smaller yields, meaning more farmland would be needed to produce the same amount of food as non-organic methods.

1 they explicitly told me in culinary school that you could call pretty much anything organic, free range or all natural. -- Submitted By: (wambamsam) on July 23, 2012, 8:42 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Organic food is a sham. Overpriced stuff that is in all probability grown in the same field as the "regular" food. Except it costs twice as much. And there are fools to buy it. -- Submitted By: (JustLooking) on March 24, 2011, 8:21 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Organic food is a false hope for produce. It has a much lower yield than genetically modified food and is why people in impoverished countries are starving. You need the technology and the modification of food genes to create enough food for a growing population. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on May 4, 2010, 5:58 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I'm not an animal rights nut or an environmental wacko, but I think most organic food tastes better. It is more expensive, so I can't get it all the time, but I much prefer organic meat, fruits, vegetables, milk and eggs to other brands. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 3, 2010, 4:07 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Shipping the "better stuff" all over the country may pollute the envirement too, but at least you don't take in chemicals with your meal. But enviroment issues asider: Fresh tastes better! The small, ugle apples in my garden may look less good, but they are superiour to everything I can buy in the supermarket everyday. Considering that our countries tend to produce more milk, meat aso than our population can eat, it is not that difficult to do it in a more natural way in exchange for producing less...the price is the real issue. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on January 7, 2010, 10:49 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 The whole thing is defeated when your organic food was trucked hundreds, if not thousands, of miles to your grocery store. Those trucks are far from energy-efficient and pollute the air like you wouldn't believe. Buy local and grow your own whenever possible. -- Submitted By: (Maskdt) on January 5, 2010, 4:31 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Though I slam organic methods, I keep an open mind: I dip into it now and then, because there are some organic foods which actually taste better than their conventional counterparts at my grocery store. Nobody in their right mind wants animals to be mistreated (on top of which, sick and abused animals pass on their illnesses to the food they make/are made into). With the human population going up and up, factory farming was used to make food faster and cheaper. With the Earth's human population of 6.5 Billion going up, going organic is becoming less practical. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 30, 2009, 12:52 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Even if one doesn't care about how livestock or produce gets raised, one thing that comes out of organic farming as that the food generally tastes FRESHER and better than conventionally raised foods. Not that this is in my budget to pay for every single meal, but,for example, I like how organic eggs taste the way I remember farm fresh eggs tasting in my childhood as opposed to them tasting like they were spat out of a machine. Anyway, I'm glad we consumers have the options of conventional vs. organic raised foods these days! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 29, 2009, 3:28 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 What's worse is that organic methods aren't even "better for the Earth" like these environmentalists make them out to be. I mean, if you were going to produce 100,000 gallons of milk, the organic method would require more cows (didn't the environmentalists say something about how cow farts causing global warming? So why would you want MORE cows to make MORE farts?), and more farmland (sorry, nature, but you're losing more land to promote "Earth-friendly" methods!) as opposed to non-organic methods. I could understand people going organic if they were allergic or something to pesticides, hormones, etc. used by non-organic methods, but... -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 28, 2009, 12:53 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Regular milk, around $2.25 a gallon. "Organic" milk, over $6.00 a gallon. What was it that P. T. Barnum said? -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on August 14, 2009, 12:32 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
