Depends on a few things. Are you buying organic for health or environmental reasons? What foods are we talking about? I consider grass fed beef and dairy and pastured poultry to be of the utmost importance. I believe the pork I get is well treated also but I don't know about organic. I try to be buy local and organic when I can with fruit and veggies but I probably think local is more important. I don't think that organic cheez-its are better than regular cheez-its for instance.
