Non-GMO Shopping Guide
If you haven't heard yet about Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), than you need to read up on these. They are rapidly showing up everywhere in our food system and you want to avoid them at all cost. It is a shame what is happening in America with our food supply, especially when other countries are avoiding GMOs like the plague. The best way to avoid them is to buy local fresh produce and dairy if at all possible. This link is for the Non-GMO Shopping Guide's website. Please check them out and read, read, and read! Also, if you are in a hurry on time, click here to download their latest copy of their shopping guide.
Another great option for locals in the Pickens County area is the check out the C.A.F.E. website for a member based "food co-op" where you can order fresh, in season local food from your computer and pick up each week at a local location. If you are not local, but still want to eat as fresh as possible, check out this link for your best options in your area. Don't forget about local produce stands and farmers markets in your area too!
