So much I could rant about but I know I'd just be preaching to the choir, tehe.    I'm offering this article in case people don't know about this organization founded by Dave Chapman.   I support groups like this and hope that all the young farmers out there can be encouraged by this couple's resilience and success.  I really like what they say about the value of organics being not about what's been eliminated (pesticides) but more about the good natural elements they INCLUDE (pasture nutrients)

I suspected this was happening with "Organic" foods. Thank you for sharing this inspiring story. I love those images of their pastures, so green thick and lush. Good looking cows too.
Almost makes me want to try dairy again, smiles,
Brian
