New Blog on Field Days to Support Organic Dairy Farmers 

Last month, the Deputy Administrator of the National Organic Program, Miles McEvoy, had the pleasure of attending the Northeast Organic Dairy Producers Alliance (NODPA) Field Days at Stonewall Farm in Keene, New Hampshire. The field days combine many activities for attending farmers, giving them the opportunity to learn from each other,  and speak with experts in the organic field.
