I've recently noticed that I've been choosing organic meats over regular meats, after seeing an episode of "Jamie's Kitchen" where the kids went to an organic pig farm.
I always assumed that organic meat was organic purely for the foods the animals were fed... but the farmer on Jamie's Kitchen said that to be organic, the animals have to live a very "natural" life as well... free to run around, breed at will and whatnot.
I really liked that, and hence have been trying to buy organic meats whenever I can.
I've also, for many years, used free-range eggs after seeing a video on battry hens at school. They cost heaps more, but for me, it's worth it...knowing that at least these animals were given a decent life (before they were killed to be eaten).
It's a bit gross thinking that animals are killed so that I can enjoy a burger, but there's no way in hell I'm giving up meat, so I appreciate that the meat I'm choosing to eat (if I can find/afford it) has had a decent life...
I've also found that they taste SO much yummier (you don't get that greasy "animal fat seeping through my pores" feeling like you do with regular meats).
I was wondering what organic products you purchase and why?
I don't buy organic veges or anything else simply for the fact that they are organic... for whatever reason, I just don't care about organic veges/fruit etc.
So what organic stuff do you buy, and why?
