I was just noticing that so many wonderful visitors come to this blog site address to visit Dairy Goddess but actually my most updated blog address is now accessible via my website….
I am so sorry for the inconvenience and not advising you of that sooner.
I have to admit I am behind on posting on that blog site too. I plan on making a post though, very soon!
I have so much to share with you. Not only has my blog moved onto my website but my cows have moved to our new farm too. (Just up the road from our previous farm)
Why the move you ask? Well, we have made the decision to transition to Organic Farming. We are about half way there (It takes about 3 years to transition). We are really excited for our last half!
As you can imagine we have been so very busy with this move and transition so please be patient…I can’t wait to share with you all of our goings on.
My Mom always had a saying growing up…”The ones you love the most are the ones that often get neglected…” I feel that is so true with my Blog and it’s followers AKA “Godd-etts” I promise I am going to try to be better. I truly love blogging and I love each of you!
Have a “Dairy” Good Day!

China...Is that Organic?
As a farmer I get so upset at the “branding” and “creative” labeling on packages. I have blogged about it before. I have linked a video below showing how Whole Foods Markets gets “creative” with the labeling!
This trend is becoming more blatant. Whole Foods, which takes it’s often “elitist” food stance. Selling food to the rich and famous while making those on a budget often feel guilty that they are not providing “Organic” food for their families!
Whole Foods sells a “California Organic” product that is “certified” yet it is from China! This labeling is taking advantage of the consumers trust and hard earned dollar.
US organic market is highly regulated. California producers invest in that type of farming for consumers who wish to purchase it.
In China, they do not have the same standards. They can produce these products cheaper because the do not have the same “rules”. So to improve their profits they use the right words on the packaging but fail to provide the consumer what they innocently believe they are paying for. That is just WRONG!
See for yourself
