Vote for no chemicals in or on your food with your food shopping dollar by shoping at an organic farm or look for the organic farmer at your farmer's market. Their farms stands are open and flowing with beautiful pesticide/herbicide free produce. You'll also be supporting increasingly shrinking small family farms. We need to support these small family farms.

Organic farming is not only the best way to feed the world – it is the only way to feed the world in a sustainable way.

Organic farms, contrary to conventional wisdom, outperform conventional farms in these ways:
