Dairy farmers reap the rewards of going organic

BAINBRIDGE – In 2006, after more than 30 years of traditional dairy farming, Barry and Nancy Rusweiler went organic.

Making the transition was all his son Adam’s doing, according to Rusweiler. “It was his idea to go organic,” he explained, but he, too, has embraced the organic philosophy.



“We believe, as far as the health of the children in this country, they all should be drinking organic (milk),” said Rusweiler.

The family had always valued quality and taken great pride in the milk they produced, he said, which made the transition of their Bainbridge farm a smooth one. Especially since they found a distributor who appreciates quality as much as they do and which, according to company literature, happens to be “the nation’s leading brand of certified organic milk” – Horizon Organic.
