Good News: Got Milk

by
Abby Zimet

In an unlikely success story here in Maine, ten family dairy farms that
were dropped by an out-of-state processor have banded together to form,
with the help of state agencies, their own organic milk company. Run
like a co-op but legally a low-profit corporation, Maine's Own Organic
Milk Co., aka MOO Milk, sells milk produced, processed and trucked by
Maine family businesses, with 90% of profits going back to the farms.
Very cool. See MOO here.
