Yeah it sucks.
Can see why non-organic food is more expensive though. In terms of livestock and poultry
production, you have to guarantee the animals a certain level of freedom and care - i.e a farmer can rear x free range hens, or many more battery hens in the same space. If he's got less hens, he is going to want more money for each one to get the same as income as he would get by non-organic farming. By not being allowed to use certain hormones and steroids, in theory vetinary bills may be higher.
In terms of crops if a farmer is not allowed to use chemicals and pesticides, he is more likely to lose more of that crop due to disease and insects than if he sprayed those crops.
Basically non-organic farming results in lower yields, hence the higher prices.
There was a big expose in a British newspaper last week how a lot of organic produce isn't actually organic - it's just labelled as such. The average consumer has no way of knowing this. All a farmer or store keeper has to do is label a product as organic and charge a higher price and how would anyone really know??
