Organic Vs. Local - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. You are in a grocery store and you want to decide what is the best produce to buy, local conventional or organic that maybe more expensive and it has traveled a long distance. So, it is no longer local. So, there is a few things to take into consideration, organic food due to organic farming practices are grown in soil that is a lot more nutritious. It has been enriched with manure, so your produce is going to taste a lot better. More nutritious soil, more nutritious produce it is going to taste better. However if you had to then decide, there is the organic but it does not look so fresh cause it has traveled some distance and the local conventional looks a lot fresher. I will suggest to go with fresh, because fresh is going to taste better every time, regardless whether it is organic or local. Here is an interesting fact, there was a scientific study that was done where animals were given both conventional and organic produce and each time they chose to eat the organic. So, obviously it tasted a lot better to them. So, that is my tip on choosing between organic and conventional food and vegetables.
