Mom always knows best right? Well, according to a recent survey commissioned by U.S. corn and soybean farmers there are five things that Moms get wrong at the grocery store. The survey wasn’t done with the intent of proving Moms wrong, it was done to identify some of the misunderstandings that consumers may have about food at the grocery store. One of those five things was misunderstanding the definition of organic production. A whopping 84% of Moms believe that organic food is farmed completely without pesticides, fertilizers, or herbicides, while in fact there are more than fifty synthetic pesticides that may be used in organic crop production if other pest control substances fail. Also, Moms reported that they felt feeding hormone free poultry and pork to their families was important, but that they would have to pay a lot more for it. Truth be told, poultry or pork labeled hormone free shouldn’t cost more as the USDA prohibits farmers from using hormones to raise chickens and pigs. Another interesting belief by Moms came to light during the survey and that’s that 70% of Moms believe the family farm is nearly extinct, when according to the USDA out of the 2.2 million farms in the U.S. 96% to 98% of them are family farms.
