Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Buying directly from farmers has outsized impact on local economy, UC Davis study finds
The Sacramento Bee - 7/20/2016.
By Adam Ashton - As a past board member at the Davis farmers market, Shermain Hardesty knows that people who buy fruits and vegetables directly from producers show up week after week and voice support for local businesses.
A Farmer’s Thoughts on 100% Grass Fed Dairying
The Cornucopia Institute - 7/19/2016.
By Jack Lazor, Butterworks Farm - One hundred per cent grass fed dairy products (aka “grass milk”) has been a relatively recent arrival to the dairy section of most natural foods outlets. The health benefits of 100% grass fed dairy have long been espoused by The Weston A. Price Foundation and others. When cows live on a diet from which grain has been eliminated, the omega 3 fatty acid profile increases in their milk. Grass fed beef has become quite popular because of the presence of conjugated linoleic acids (CLAs) in the meat. Higher CLAs reduce one’s risk of cancer and other diseases. These same nutritional advantages hold true for 100% grass fed milk products.
GMO labeling bill exposes rift between Maine, national organic trade groups
Bangor Daily News - 7/15/2016.
By Anthony Brino - A membership group of organic seed growers led by Bridgewater farmer Jim Gerritsen has split ranks with a large national organic trade group in a dispute over how best to require labeling of foods made with genetically engineered crops.
Paying Farmers to Go Organic, Even Before the Crops Come In
The New York Times - 7/14/2016.
By Stephanie Strom: Denair, Calif. – The last time Wendell Naraghi tried to make money from organic nuts, in the 1980s, he failed miserably. “Basically, we stopped because no one paid me,” said Mr. Naraghi, whose father started the family’s large nut orchards here in the Central Valley in the 1940s. “There just was no market premium for organic.” Today, the problem is turned upside down: Companies can’t get enough organic ingredients to satisfy consumer desire for organic and nongenetically modified foods.
