Permalink Organic Milk Prices Dropping in Vermont

An article posted on VTDigger reports that organic dairy farmers in Vermont are struggling with falling prices. Organic milk companies blame the situation on an oversupply of organic milk, caused in part by conventional farmers switching to organic because of the price premiums that the organic market offers. Organic milk companies have been working with farmers to reduce supply in an effort to stabilize prices, but they are now cutting the price they pay for organic milk. Cooperatives are limiting the number of members who can join and have established quotas on the amount of milk they can provide, in an effort to maintain prices for their members.
