Organic Bashing

Various false and specious organic bashing themes over the years have included: organic farms are weedy, if we go organic someone must starve, organic crops are inferior quality, buggy, and small. The sources have been numerous: including farm bureau groups, extension agents, and multi-national corporations; the delivery in multiple forms: newspaper and magazines, radio talk shows, grade school curriculums, even rural billboards in corn fields. Perhaps it’s as Gandhi says: “”First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.”
