Being raw in New Jersey / New York?
This is kind of a random question, but how easy is it to be raw and organic in New Jersey / New York City area compared to other states? Here in west Michigan, it's fairly challenging, as we can't grow our own food in the winter (which, here, is like 5 months of being too cold to grow stuff), and the stores near us don't have a whole lot of organic options. It's getting better, but still challenging. Also, there's a lot of corn and soy fields around us (like a LOT) and I wonder how much of it is GMO (genetically modified). A local school district just got a $10,000 grant from Monsanto, so if they're not already growing lots of crap around here, I'm sure they've got something planned. :mad: How much of that is there in the Jersey/ New York area, too? I saw a flyer from last year that listed the organic farms and organic restaurants in New Jersey, and there was quite a lot, especially for such a small state! I want to move, and am just curiously checking out other areas to see how easy it'd be for me to live in different cities.
(And by the way, which area of Jersey is the best for organic stuff? It sounded like southern NJ had the most farms, but I don't really know anything about that area.)
