I just saw your "comments" on organic foods & what a crock of crap. Trust me Walmart wouldn't sell organic milk if there wasn't a demand.. people vote with thier money. All it takes for someone else to start purchasing organic is for another recall or ecoli etc...just keep telling yourself that line. Robbie Orr

Thanks for your response. We obviously disagree, so you can bet on anecdotal observations, and I'll work with real numbers. Like here, here and here. I'm not saying organic isn't growing, but it's barely keeping up with market growth. 3% is 3% despite what appearances are. I'll revisit this issue from time to time to see who is closer to reality.

TIME NOW FOR OUR WEEKLY LOOK INSIDE THE FARM REPORT MAILBAG...A VIEWER IN MARYLAND IS CONCERNED ABOUT THE GROWTH OF ORGANIC PRODUCTS:
"THERE'S NOT A GROCERY STORE OUT HERE THAT'S NOT SELLING ALL NATURAL ORGANIC FOODS AND IS SELLING PRODUCE LIKE IT'S GOING OUT OF STYLE... IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME TILL THE CHINESE, RUSSIANS AND THE EUROPEAN MARKETS WILL BE WANTING THE CHANGE TO ORGANICS. THEN WHERE WILL YOU BE?"
