Personally, organic doesn't 'fit' in our family. We have been trying a box scheme for veggies and fruit and it's simply not cost effective anymore. Is it any better for us? it probably is, but it doesn't seem to make it to the weekend without going off a bit (we get it on wednesday).
However, I am more than happy to buy locally produced goods and pay the farmer a couple of miles away a small premium, than rip them off, (the farmers), indirectly by buying from enormo-supermarket chains who pay them too little.
