Support Organic Dairy Farmers

NOFA-VT has started a fundraising campaign to add an additional $50,000 to our Farmer Emergency Fund. Organic dairy farms in Vermont, and nationwide, are seeing historical lows in their pay price, with some farmers receiving an almost $10/cwt (hundred weight, or hundred pounds of milk) drop over the past year. Some milk buyers have also implemented a quota, limiting the amount of milk a farm is able to produce.
