“USDA Certified Organic” is, perhaps, a somewhat better choice than standard food stuff.  However, unless it is also local (ie: Shetler’s dairy), where there is local accountability and farmers really mean organic to be the best, “organic” doesn’t mean “non-industrial” and all the issues that surround massive industrial food production.  One example: USDA organic rules state that an “organic” chicken must have access to the outdoors.  Industry solution?  Put a small door–a couple to be generous–in the building, leading to a small dirt run.  The birds can go out if they choose.  Sound a little different than a bird that is in a mobile pen which is moved regularly to fresh grass and bugs?

Here’s a related  article about organic egg production.  All I can say is: KNOW YOUR FARMER!
