How do you know what is in your food and how it was grown? Ask your farmer! Here are the basic growing methods:
This type of farming allows chemical pesticides, chemical herbicides, chemical fungicides, sludge, chemical fertilizers, bee-killing neonicotinoids, ionizing radiation and transgenically (GMO) modified seeds. Is this stuff in your food? Ask your farmer!
This could also be called, Conventionally Grown Without Transgenics. It’s food or feed grown without genetically modified organisms. It is not, however, a promise of pesticide-free, herbicide-free, chemical fertilizer-free, bee-killing neonicitinoid-free, etc. It just means that the seed used is non-transgenic. Non-GMO is not the equivalent of Certified Organic. Non-GMO allows for toxic chemicals that are not allowed in Organics. What is in the food? Ask your farmer!
