Organic Valley has hired Kristine
Fedewa to compile a directory of inputs and resources for organic dairy
farmers. This coop is attempting to start a milk pool from Michigan, but as we all know, affordable
organic, less traveled grain access is a challenge. For those who are
seeking an expanded or additional organic crop, this may be your opportunity.
If you produce grain or forage or know of a farmer who produces for sale please
contact Kristine Fedewa at [log in to unmask]
and let her know what you have to offer, your local and contact info.
Some folks are not happy about the price that Organic Valley
is paying and feel it should be higher. I have been in contact with the Organic Valley
folks setting up this expansion in Michigan
and trying to get some specifics of how they can REALLY help the situation. I
will keep all informed as I get the info.
Please forward this info to any farmers who may benefit. The
Organic Valley farmer hot-line is 888-809-9297
where you can leave your questions and number and they will return your call.
