Vermont Organic Farmers (VOF) developed five consumer-focused video clips, designed for easy sharing online, to show the importance and value of organic production. Each video features one benefit, or value, of buying organic products: “No GMOs”, “Taste, “Stewardship”, “Community” and “Integrity”. These values are articulated by organic growers in Vermont, and were filmed on-farm, providing an intimate glimpse into the world of sustainable agriculture. (All the videos can be found on the NOFA Vermont YouTube channel.)
Certified organic producers Brent and Regina Beidler of Beidler Family Farm in Randolph Center, Vermont, discuss the increase in the use of genetically modified organisms in dairy operations and clarify the means by which they prevent GMO contamination of their organic crops.
