Organic: How much will you pay?

It's no surprise that prices for organic groceries have risen recently along with their conventional counterparts. An article in the New York Times today points to the rising fuel and grain prices behind some of the added costs.

"Organic prices are rising for many of the same reasons affecting conventional food prices: higher fuel costs, rising demand and a tight supply of the grains needed for animal feed and bakery items. In fact, demand for organic wheat, soybeans and corn is so great that farmers are receiving unheard-of prices."

How much are you willing to pay for organic?
