It is often more expensive to buy organic food than regular food, so there is a lot of debate about whether or not it is worth it.
Although there are many benefits to organic food, I believe it comes down to the question of whether you or your children want to eat pesticides in your food.
If your answer is “No” and you are interested in organic foods, how can you keep the price down?
You can grow your own
Growing your own plants is the cheapest option. It doesn’t even require much space or a garden!
You can grow strawberries and tomatoes in containers.
Organic soil and organically grown seeds or plants are the best combination. This will ensure that you enjoy all of their benefits.
Containers can be placed anywhere there is daylight. This means they can be used on balconies and other hard surfaces.
Find local suppliers
Locally buying organic food is one of the best things you can do. This will allow you to get the best ingredients for your kitchen, and also support local businesses. You will get very competitive prices if the supplier does not have to transport your ingredients.
Remember that these businesses will also employ local workers so everyone wins.
A large monthly market is held on an abandoned airstrip. The market sells many items, including organic food. However, the prices are extremely competitive. They are all local suppliers, and we get healthy competition. We also get to try a lot of fruits!
Local box schemes
You may not be able to leave your home or you are too busy to pick your groceries by yourself, so why not sign up for an organic box program?
A weekly supply of seasonal fruits and vegetables will be delivered to your home.
Finally, check to see if there are any organic farms in your area that have a farm shop. The local one we know is open to the public so you can see the animals and the crops being grown.
The farm actually has a well-designed walk route that takes you around it. This makes for a great day out for your kids.
You can save a lot while your family enjoys the delicious foods.
