North Bay Organic Dairies Suffer From Drought

“Organic cows must forage on organic pasture, pasture that by definition must be within a cow’s walking distance from the milking barn. Thanks to the drought, there is virtually no pasture in Marin and Sonoma counties – and without locally grown pasture, a farm can’t keep its organic certification.”

Interesting piece about how the drought is complicating organic dairy farming in  Northern California even worse than non-organic farming.
