ALWAYS buy organic, and try to always buy local….we should be buying local and organic, though for mostly different reasons — check them out:
There is currently a study being done at UC Davis to answer that question. It is true that food miles matter, but the amount that they matter relative to what the food is is pretty shocking. It’s much more important that you eat foods that take less energy to produce (like chicken as opposed to beef) than where it comes from. How this question relates to fertilizer and pesticide use and those sorts of questions is yet to be seen. On average, though, just to put things in perspective, delivery from farm to store is about 4% of a food’s carbon footprint. Important, but maybe less so than other things.
