The debate can continue as long as there are farmers, regardless of the growing method. For those of us who do not want to eat vegetables that are coated with pesticides, there are few choices. No matter the growing method, we know that clean food is better food. The search for safe, nutritious food needs to start outside your own front door. The best way to know if “organically grown” produce or any produce is clean and safe, is to know your farmer. We cannot be sure of the safety of either organic or hydroponic vegetables that are grown in foreign countries, and what sprays or contamination may be on them. Buying food from a local farmer is the final answer to eating the best and safest possible produce.
