    The halal thing seems to be a bit of hysteria whipped up by The Sun. Waitrose told The Huffington Post thal all NZ lamb has to be stunned.

    Having read the Qu'ran I can say that while the ritual slaughter is the norm, Muslims can pray over food which doesn't otherwise deviate from food laws and make it halal ie pork would always be haraam but if necessary praying over your non-halal slaughtered lamb would make it halal.

    Daylesford and Laverstoke Park Farm are two big organic farming operations which have their own abattoir so their animals and poultry are born, raised and killed on the farm.

    Ella of Deliciously Ella cookbook fame, took up a challenge for 2 people to eat organic for 7 days on the average UK weekly food budget of £59 and she managed it ! The website gives details of all the food she made and the store cupboard organic items she was allowed. From the photo it seems that she shopped at Sainsbury's.

    If you are interested in the cookbook you may find it cheaper on Amazon. I saved ££ against Waterstone's price.

    Re:organic store cupboard things, organic pasta can be cheaper in Lidl.
