Organic Milk

It's not easy going green. That's the message from a small group of dairy farmers in Nova Scotia who have spent the last two years looking for a way to get local, organic milk onto store shelves. The farmers say that have a perfectly workable plan but have been stymied by provincial regulators. The Dairy Farmers of Nova Scotia - the group that regulates the collection and distribution of milk in the province - argues the farmers' plan for organic milk "is a square peg in a round hole," and more time and thought is needed before organic milk can be brought to market.
