Organic - it's actually a legal term, not necessarily what you think it is. People often use the term to mean "not commercial" or "no pesticides" or the like, but it really has to do with much more.
Animal products marked organic must be from animals raised on organic food, as well as without antibiotics or hormones. If pastured, they must range on a pasture land that has not been used for anything 'non-organic' for 6 or more years.
Plants marked organic are subject to the land rule, and are not fertilized with anything but organic fertilizers - no chemicals and no bone meal in the soils. They are also not sprayed with chemicals, nor have been hormone pollinated (those big grapes - not organic).
My eggs are not "organic" because I feed them a commercial lay pellet that I find is balanced and contains a good ration of calcium and protein. Otherwise, they are from cage free hens with outdoor access and occasional pasture time. When you are shopping eggs, look carefully at the labels and know what you're getting.
Next week - what does it mean when an egg is Large, Extra Large, Medium, or grade A, AA, or B. I'll also talk about the grades of meat: Prime, Choice, Good, Cutter, Canner.
