But Is It Really “Organic?”

Another story concerning the organic label:

The Wisconsin-based Cornucopia Institute has just filed a complaint with the USDA against two dairy farms in Idaho and California. It alleges that massive factory farms are labeling their products organic even though their thousands of cows are not pasture-fed, as required by USDA guidelines. Last month the institute — which is devoted to “the fight for economic justice for the family-scale farming community” (and also taking pictures out the car window) — filed a complaint against a similar operation in Colorado. This led the USDA to start ruminating on what “access to pasture” really means, anyway.
