Jay Uhler Chester, New York Organic is when you plant something in the ground and don’t mess with it.
Will Brown Warwick, New York We have not gone down the organic certification route. As far as our cows are concerned, they’re just naturally in the fields.
Dan Leader Boiceville, New York Organic to me is a process, it is unfiltered and you are not dealing with the questions of pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides.
Jeff Bialas Goshen, New York Organic is the way people did things 100 years ago. That’s the way they did it then and that’s the way we should do it now.

Hanna Bail Philmont, New York You can be better then the organic certification; I am sorry to say. But that’s just how it is.
