Labels are no fun

Organic, free range, grass fed ect. Have we ever thought about where these labels came from or why we have them now? The reality is that these labels allow someone you will never meet to produce a product you will be willing to buy. That organic labels you are paying and extra $2/lb for is so a Peruvian farmer can assure you what he was growing was clean and environmentally friendly.

Why be subject to labels anymore? Break out and buy from a local farmer. They are closer than you think. These are the small family farms you think you are helping when you buy that organic label at the store. Want to know something scary? "Grass fed" beef can still be finished on corn, organic products still can have known cancer causing agents, and sea salt is no better or worse than regular salt.
