“organic” finally means what we think it does!

the USDA is saying now they will enforce new rules that govern the pasturage of livestock whose meat and milk are to receive an “organic” label. this label used to be pretty loose and meaningless, but now, according to slashfood.com, “Animals must be permitted to graze at least four months out of the year, and receive 30 percent of their sustenance from that source during those periods.”

this is very good news. no more wondering if you are wasting money at the grocery store by paying for the “organic” label. -but this still won’t stop producers from labeling their meat with the misleading “all natural” label. jerks.
