You could be thinking that nothing might be more distant from Donald Trump’s mind than Organic Farming. He might be the king of fast food right now as in Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Just picture in your mind the Obama and Trump news clip when they first met at the White House after the election. It is obvious from the photograph that Barack is eating vegetables out of Michelle’s White House Garden while Donald is opening up the fried chicken and fries.
Your bottom line as well as mine is that during the Trump administration, big business and industrial farming will have an economic edge over the local organic farmer. If you want to buy organic it will be expensive. Get ready to pay high prices. I might add that I read the magazine Farming. The articles are full of information about GMO’s, pesticides and herbicides. Big farmers are tied into the chemical companies for added productivity and improved profitability.
