One of the main reasons that I buy mostly organic ingredients is because of my history with ovarian cancer. I am trying to do the best I can to minimize the risk of a recurrence of that cancer. Buying food that is organic helps, because I know how the food is produced and I can trust the sources. I also buy most of our food at local farmer’s markets during the summer/fall months.
I buy Hy-Vee brand organic milk, which is actually produced by Kalona Organics (yes, it’s Kalona, Iowa – my hometown). Kalona Organics works with Amish and Mennonite farmers, and the owners personally know each farmer they work with. However, here is an article I found that is rather disturbing to me. Read it! Here is the link.
