How organic is your milk?

Check out this study done on dozens of organic dairies across the US.  You'll see the score difference between a family farm and a factory farm.  Spokane Family Farm isn't on there because they are not certified organic.  I'm glad they're not CO because with it come some rules that are harsh when a cow gets sick.  They law requires them to kill the cow.  At SFFs this is not so, they treat their cows like family.  So, anyways, as you can see Costco and Horizon organic milks rate at the very bottom for their factory farming ethics.

Here is an article I found about SFF


  1. Cornucopia is a great site! I was discovering about the organic milk too. It is crazy how the companies manipulate and sell things as being healthy.
    Thanks for visiting my blog and have a great weekend!

  2. It's sad really how things are skewed. Anyone's best bet is to buy locally :)
