When I reread the portion of the 1990 Farm Bill that initiated the rules
process, I thought "Who's idea was this?" It is clear from the purpose
of Title XXI that "national standards...to facilitate interstate
commerce" only serves large producers who need to put their product in
a box, ship it across the country, and sell it to a target market
guaranteed by the "organic" label. If you are running a CSA or selling
at the local farm market, you can look your customers in the eye and
they connect you directly to their food supply.
When these rules pass, as I am sure they will, you can bet on the
appearance next spring of Green Giant Organic frozen entrees.
