- Drink up!
The arrival of East Coast Organic Milk is a reason to celebrate, really. Years of hard work came to fruition for a small co-op of farmers this fall when three varieties (whole, one and two percent) made their way onto shelves province-wide. Frazer Hunter, of certified organic Knoydart Farm, David van Zutphen, of Dellside Farm, a certified organic producer, Lloyde Blois and Philip Nunn (both in transition to organic dairy production), Herman Mentink, a retired organic dairy farmer, and Just Us Coffee Roasters are the team behind East Coast Organic, and they don't plan to stop at milk. Yogurt, chocolate milk and cream are in the works as well.
But for now, if you're thinking that heaping plate of cookies you’ll polish off at some point this week will taste a lot better if paired with an icy glass organic milk, grab a carton at: the Seaport Farmer’s Market, Local Source (5783 Charles Street), Pete’s Frootique (1595 Bedford Highway, 1515 Dresden Row), Planet Organic (6485 Quinpool Road), Edible Matters (1345 Hammonds Plains Road), RSD & Jo’s Country Market in Timberlea and both location of Just Us! in Halifax.
