Actually, Chipolte is NOT GMO free. NPR has a more accurate picture:

There is no scientific evidence that GMOs pose a risk to health, as Chipotle founder and co-CEO Steve Ells readily acknowledges.”…and…

“But the journey isn’t done: Chipotle still uses meat from animals that may feed on GMO corn or soybeans. Ells says he wants to change that, but it is likely to take several years.”

If you wish to raise organic food, I applaud your freedom to farm and take advantage of opportunities in the marketplace. You are also free to label the food you produce as non-GMO, and you should as you will be able to charge a premium for it. However, farming needs to remain diverse so everyone can afford good nutrition.

How lucky we are to live in a country where food is abundant, and we can quibble about our burritos. As is famously said, “If you have food, you have a lot of problems. If you do not have food, you have one problem.”
