Traders Point Creamery
Considering going organic for your dairy products? Check out what local dairy farmers are in your area. Traders Point Creamery is a family-owned artisan dairy that is not far from where I live. They provide organic, 100% grass-fed dairy products to local farmers markets, as well as select retail outlets. I recently had a lovely visit to their farm, and believe they have, hands down, the best yogurt I have ever tasted.
This post comes on the heels of an article on CNN regarding the USDA accusing Aurora, one of the nationís largest producers of organic milk, of cutting corners. Aurora, who supplies organic milk to places like Wal-Mart, Target and Costco, will now be under scrutiny for breaking the rules.
So, next time you are going organic, I encourage you to look at local farmers instead of heading to the convenience of supermarket chains. And while youíre there, take time to stop and smile at the cows for me.
