Is Organic Expensive?

Many consumers are concerned with the cost of buying organic, and it's true that the price tag of an organic product is sometimes a little higher.  Labor costs, time-intensive farming methods used by typically smaller organic farms, and the lack of government subsidies for organic farmers all contribute to a more expensive end-product.  But when you're thinking about whether to buy organic, you really have to look at the bigger picture.

Conventional foods have many hidden costs.  The expenses associated with personal health and environmental degradation, for example, just weren't factored in when you bought the food.  We (and our children) will pay those costs later.  With the prices of fossil fuels rising, we'll also see conventional crops costing more (conventional foods use fertilizers that are made from fossil fuels).  So when you consider all the issues from a broad perspective, buying non-organic food is really just too expensive to even consider.

When you buy organic, you make the decision to pay it forward with each purchase.  Your consumptive choices help sustain and grow the organic farming movement, which preserves and protects the environment for future generations.  And not to mention, you get delicious foods and quality products manufactured with care.  At Ayala's Herbal Water, we think that's a steal of a deal.
