WHEN does "ORGANIC" actually mean GMO?
Even though some food is labeled organic, the seeds may still have come from a GMO source; like if a small to mid-size farmer buys seeds or plants, such as tomatoes, from a Home Depot or Lowe's, and then plants them in organic soil and does not use pesticide, they are still GMO, but they don't get labeled as such. Who knows this? How do you avoid it? Did you know bees will fly 50 miles, cross-pollinating from one farm to another by carrying mutated genes from corporate GMO farms to organic farms. There are lawsuits coming from both sides, and the war that is being waged by the people who don't want to eat pesticide-laden, GENETICALLY MUTATED CROP has just begun.

What does "organic" really mean?

Simply stated, organic produce and other ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation. Also, very important is that the animals that are consumed or produce eggs and milk do not take antibiotics or growth hormones.

Going to a local farmer's market is one wise path, but they still may have bought GM seeds or used pesticides, or both. Most likely, your friendly local farmers have respect and maintain the integrity of their crop, for the sake of their families, their neighbors, and their community.(

Some organics are marked "heirloom" or state absolutely no gmo. This usually means they used heirloom seeds. Ask local farmers what sort of seed they used. They should say or make some reference to heirloom if touting organic.
But yeah... locally grown does not necessarily mean organic. Just almost no carbon footprint & support of local farming which is enough for some to feel good

I believe if the product is certified USDA ORGANIC then it is 100% GMO free.
