Nowadays, many people feel eating organic food is a fad or an expensive diet, but they don’t see it for what it really is, a healthy way of eating. Organic farming used to be the way of life before mass crop productions and GMOs, genetically modified organisms, According to the United States Department of Agriculture, the USDA, organic farming produces products using methods that preserve the environment and avoid most synthetic materials, such as pesticides and antibiotics.
