I like the organic honey label. Some clever beekeeper out there has finally figured out how to train a honeybee to only visit organic plants. Amazing!

HaHa!
I asked a beekeeper, who labels his honey as organic, that exact same question and he said they take their hives to areas of native pasture and trees. To qualify as organic, the hives have to be a minimum number of miles away from sown pastures or cropland.
However, bees are allowed to be "conditioned" on cropland.
But Yep! There are a lot of shades of grey in organic marketing.

Apparently I express my displeasure with how us farmers are getting screwed a little too vigorously.
Clearly you need to learn how to entertain yourself in the grocery store. Flip a box of condoms into some blue haired lady's cart. Or a can of prune juice into some youngster's cart. My wife doesn't like me shopping with her either but its because I have too much fun.

I have seen gluten free tomatoes in the store. A restaurant we were at touted gluten free chicken, turkey,pork and beef. The one that took the cake was organic bottled water in a convenience store.

I've heard that they want to crack down on advertising stuff as non gmo that does not actually have a gmo counterpart...

Check out the price of flax at bulk barn, it has come down, but a few years ago it came in at over $200/bu.

And the gluten free thing, my kids bubble bath is "Now Gluten Free". I guess it is now safe for all the celiac suffering kids to slam down a few shots of bubble bath now.
