A Vermont Dairy Farm


This video features the Corse dairy farm in southern Vermont. Established in 1868, this is a fifth-generation certified organic dairy farm, Organic Valley member, with 50-60 cows. Dairy farms have been reduced from nine to three in this town of Whitingham. In 1947 there were 11,206 dairy farms in Vermont. In 2007, there were 1,087.

  1. Given that the USDA will not require any sort of notification, to themselves or other farm operations in the same area, for Genetically Modified alfalfa I think it's fair to say that the "organic milk" will go the way of the buggy whip relatively soon.
