Organic Milk Produced In Ghent NY

Reuters has done an excellent story on an organic milk producer from Ghent NY.

Milk Thistle Farm

Organic is the way to go. Why drink anything else when we are more aware of the list of additives and genetically modified parts as well in non organic milk. The extra cost is worth it 100%.

The farmer is expanding his business by seeking out customers to invest in $1,000 increments. The idea is to expand the operation into more organic dairy products.

I think its fantastic that a start up, start from scratch business of this type can potentially flourish.

Reuters: Organic dairy farmer bets on customer investment
...sales of organic milk in 2007 totaled more than $1.3 billion in the United States. While organic accounts for just 3 percent of the U.S.'s total milk sales, it has been growing at an annual average rate of more than 20 percent over the past decade (last year it dipped to 10 percent).
