    Don’t trust; verify

Yowza. Just another encouragement to know your farmer…really well, and to abandon commercially produced food altogether.

But, as we’re learning in the States, “organic” no longer means what we think it means. USDA standards have been coopted by commercial ag, and the State Department doesn’t even confirm all imported “organic” products actually comply with US standards – particularly product from China. (More on the battle for organic at RealOrganicProject.org)

Time to go local, and develop personal relationships with producers, for food we don’t produce ourselves. Governments are not reliable, not good faith actors. Don’t trust; verify.
