Best Brands of Organic Milk


Best Brands of Organic Milk

Find the best milk for your family using this new scorecard.

You'll enjoy that tall glass of fresh, cold milk even more when you're sure it came from a well-managed organic dairy.

The ever-growing popularity of all things organic has encouraged a boom in organic and hormone-free dairy products. While this trend gives us more healthy and affordable options at the grocery store, it also has given rise to a number of dairies willing to bend the rules for a share of the profit. But the Cornucopia Institute, a nonprofit small farm advocacy group, has developed a way to enable consumers to identify the best dairy brands. The report, Maintaining the Integrity of Organic Milk, includes a scorecard that rates 68 different organic dairy brands against a set of criteria central to true organic standards. Check out the milk brand scorecard.

  1. Click the milk brand scorecard - it evaluates and rates the different farms in the US. The dairies are listed on the scorecard as 5 cows (the best dairy brands) down to 0 cows. It seems to be the most current information of its kind.
