    why does a free-range chicken cost so much?

    should I ask my grocer for a video proving that the chicken actually ran around?

    what's wrong with a 2 pack-a-day, jerry springer watchin' lazy chicken?

    I basically choose local gardens, mostly my brother's-he doesn't know it yet.

    any thoughts?

    If the chicken is really legitimate, your grocer should be able to provide a video showing the chicken enjoying life with its family, as well as a folder of essays and poems written by the chicken, that proves that it led a happy and enlightened life.

    Personally, of course, I only eat foods that are certified to have come from distant lands where they grow magically, fully packaged, on old-growth trees, untouched by the hand of man. All of this is harvested by smiling naked villagers who are untainted by knowledge of money or desire for nintendo sets. Sure, it costs a little extra... OK, a LOT extra, but isn't it worth it to know that I am so darned much holier than thou?

    I deal with Organic/Natural Foods everyday, and the main reason is that supply is not keeping up with demand. Not enough farmers are moving towards organic farming (lot of regulations, etc). and there is a continued growing movement towards a healthier lifestyle and that movement contains both natural and organic foods. Many chains like Safeway's O line of products, and HEB's Central Market lines, have hundreds of natural and organic items that are very reasonable (from vitamins, to olive oils, to pasta, to baby food) and accessible to most all groups of customers who want to make major to minor lifestyle changes.

    I heard somewhere you should get rid of the skin because those growth hormone and chemical they inject in the chicken accumulated. Not to mention there where the fat is.

    Once I go to the rice field that are being ready for planting. You cant believe how bad it smell. The soil is oily, greasy and stink.This is due to the insect repellent they spray into the rice and also the chemical fertilizer. For sure those chemical enter our blood stream and instead of killing insect will eventually kill us.

    However the level of organic awareness is really new and in infancy here so it really expensive and not easy to find.
