the smart thing to do here would be to use a methane generator powered from all collected manuer. It would provide all of farms electricity as well as that of many many homes in nearby vicinity. THAT is being a good neighbor. Use the technology that is there for the good of the area.

How come there always has to be someone spoiling the milk? That's what the FDA is for, Hippie.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has a milk ordinance governing milk safety. USDA does not allow milk containing 750 million or more pus cells per liter to be shipped across state borders. That should be good news to milk drinkers.

This is an amazing businessman for the simple fact he was able to market this idea to neighbors and friends. To Hippie, its not pus, its somatic cell count. Thanks to this type of agriculture, we arn't having to adjust our standard of living, or sacrifice saftey or quality. Unlike what we are doing with fuel for instance. Go USA and welcome to America.

My concern was not about whether the property owner knew how to do his taxes right. I was thinking that the government would probably hit him with an outrageous assessment and property tax bill. But then, this is a business isn't it? Probably no need to worry after all.

bill, you have no idea what free range means for milk or anything... you would load your pants if you knew
Actually, I do know what free-range means. I also know that it is important to know one's supplier...

There is no USDA standard for "free-range" on any animal, other than chickens. The standard for chickens is rather loose. 5 minutes of open-air access per day qualifies.

Since the USDA isn't doing its job in standardizing the terminology, it is important to know one's supplier.

That's right - you know best. Next time I go to Trader's Point I'll be sure to tell them that EMaMC needs to consult with them on their claims.

Want to do something about organic, too, while you are at it?
