    Yeah. I don't know how we can get away from it. Though we are rural and are farming organically, there's a conventional corn field on the neighboring property and down the road. We see them spray a few times a year due to being testing grounds for chemical companies. :( Organic farms only need a 5 foot buffer from the conventional fields to become certified organic. To me that's not enough. I'd love more space between!

    You would think, but that's what we were told. Crazy, eh?
