The co-operative is recruiting organic dairy farmers as the demands of organic dairy are increasing.
“From conventional farming to organic farming, it’s a three-year certification process. So, to grow quickly, it’s very difficult, and last year, the farmgate prices have been quite buoyant. So, the farmers that come to our co-operative aren’t driven by the dollar. It’s about that lifestyle and sustainability of farming.” – Bruce Symons, Former CEO of Organic Dairy Farmers Co-operative
Healthy soils and cows along with good pastures, reduced costs and stable prices are major benefits of organic dairying.
