I buy organic whenever I can. The only meat I buy is free range (which is usually, but not always, organic), so because of the cost we only eat meat once or twice a week. I find organic food usually tastes better, especially when I buy stuff from the weekly farmer's market. My husband is a keen gardener and the only chemical he uses in the garden is slug and snail pellets. Last year the little buggers ate almost all our lettuce and tomatoes, so we had no choice but to wage chemical warfare as none of the environmentally friendly methods worked.
