NYT interviews Kersbergen about struggles of Northeast organic dairy farms amid industry-wide change

The New York Times interviewed Rick Kersbergen, a University of Maine Cooperative Extension professor, about the struggles Northeast organic dairy farms are facing amid industry-wide change. “There’s been an enormous growth of organic dairy farms west of the Mississippi — Texas, Colorado,” Kersbergen said. “That’s created a situation where these mega-organic dairy farms are able to produce organic milk at a much cheaper cost than those farms in the Northeast.”
