    True, what Chad said..but you get what you pay for. You want better stuff, then you have to pay for it. You have to support those farmers man, they are a dieing breed. What is a good idea to do is that you don't have to buy everything organic if you cannot afford it. Pick the food you eat most and buy that organic, then everything else don't worry about. I usually buy grass fed beef, organic eggs/butter/raw milk/pasta, everything else not so much. Yes, I have to budget :)))...Since I cannot always get things organic..

    Yes, grass fed is way better. The cow is only as nutritious as what it eats. The grains it's usually fed are not nearly as nutritious as grass, which is its natural diet. Additionally, grass fed meat and eggs all have a perfect balance of omega3 and omega6. The highly imbalanced grain fed meat is probably why meat gets such a bad wrap by health 'experts'.

    Grassfed is higher in Omega 3's and lower in cholesterol, but usually tastes like wet hay.
    The only time it ever actually eats real grass is in spring and summer so if you're eating it in the winter or anytime there's no green grass available than it's just eating hay and getting vitamins.
    The best thing to do is find a natural beef that is free from hormones and antibiotics. either grasssfed or not. Try to find a specialty store that sells natural or organic foods. Like Whole Foods or something like that
