Milk (well, we buy that Horizon Organic...so i guess that's corporate organic) - lasts a lot longer, tastes better
Eggs - Cage Free/Free Range, although lately there is a guy i work with who raises chickens and brings in eggs
Vegetables - sorry...i'm not paying an extra $1.00 for a green pepper or apple. i'll take my chances
Meat - i went in on a whole cow once, but typically again i'll just take my chances and not grossly overpay for organic meat i find at the store
however, my wife wants to make home-made baby food for our 5 month old when he is ready for solids and said he is only eating orgainc, so i may ultimately lose the veggie battle
also, i've been trying to avoid processed foods more and more, but i'm not a dirty hippie or anything like that, so we'll still eat that kind of stuff from time to time

Q&A: Does organic milk last longer?
Why does the organic milk I buy last so much longer than regular milk? —J.H., Holden, Mass.
Organic milk often undergoes "ultrapasteurization," in which the milk is heated to a very hot 280° F (137.8° C) for 2 seconds, rather than the 161° F (71.7° C) for 15 seconds used in conventional pasteurization. By killing more bacteria, the extra heat extends the milk's expiration date. It's not clear whether organic-milk producers ultrapasteurize as an additional safeguard against bacteria, since organic cows consume no antibiotics, or simply to extend shelf life. Properly refrigerated, ultrapasteurized milk has a shelf life of 40 to 60 days unopened, compared with 15 to 17 days for milk pasteurized the regular way. But you should consume all milk within 7 to 10 days after opening.
