Once I tried organic milk,(I like Horizon)I have never gone back to using the "regular stuff." In this case, there really is a difference. I am also weary of things that contain High Fructose Corn Syrup. Its even in most breads at the supermarket. That stuff is everywhere. Alot of organic foods that contain sugar, contain sugar-not High Fructose Corn syrup. I also only buy eggs from vegetarian fed hens. You hear things like chickens being fed other chickens-and thats just wrong! But given the choice, I would always buy produce from the local guy, over organic at the store.
