Certified Organic

Part of my new organic quest has been defining what it really means.

What makes one thing organic, but another thing Certified organic?

Turns out it is a big deal difference! Companies have strict guidelines to adhere to and it takes years to get that certification! And, they have to forego government subsidies and PAY THE GOVERNMENT to inspect them annually to make sure they are sticking to the strict giudelines.

Doesn't sound right does it?
