FarmVille Now Offers Organic Crops

If you're an environmentally conscious FarmVille player, you may be concerned about the impact that your agricultural practices are having on the environment. After all, the pesticides that you use on your farm could seep into the water table and poison plants, animals, and humans alike. Thankfully, you now have the option of planting organic blueberries:

Next week, FarmVille will, for the first time, offer its pretend farmers a specific food brand. Players will be able to plant an organic blueberry crop from Cascadian Farm, a subsidiary of General Mills. The objective is for FarmVille users to learn about organic farming and green living, and at the same time, earn additional points to grow fruits and vegetables or raise animals on their virtual farms. Cascadian Farm executives say they hope that the company can expand its food niche and make itself better known by increasing awareness among FarmVille’s audience.

It's just a promo for this organic farm company. There have been promos for 7-11 and for Green Giant inside the game too. I doubt it's because farmers feel bad about growing virtual non-organic crops.
