In the summer, I grow a lot of my own food using organic methods. In the winter, I use the dirty dozen/clean 15 lists to decide what produce to buy organically. (Those are the lists of the produce that contains the most/least pesticide residue when grown non-organically.) I have family members that raise chickens, so I get farm fresh eggs from them, but when their hens aren't laying in the winter, I buy organic, cage-free eggs. I have started to buy more and more pastured, organic meat. I recently joined a local food buying co-op and through that am able to source meat from local producers. I haven't really looked into organic dairy yet. I probably should. We drink a lot of milk. I don't buy much processed food in general, but when I do pick up something like a can of soup, I tend to look to the organic products first.
