Monsanto Brings Small Family Dairy to Court

Oakhurst Dairy has been owned and operated by the same Maine family since 1921, and Monsanto recently attempted to put them out of business. Oakhurst, like many other dairy producers in the U.S., has been responding to consumer demand to provide milk free of rBGH, a synthetic hormone banned (for health reasons) in every industrialized country other than the U.S. Monsanto, the number one producer of the rBGH synthetic steroid, sued Oakhurst, claiming they should not have the right to inform their customers that their dairy products do not contain the Monsanto chemical. Given the intense pressure from the transnational corporation, Oakhurst was forced to settle out of court, leaving many other dairies vulnerable to similar attacks from Monsanto.

When I read this I knew people should be informed about what some of these large chemical corporations are doing. My question to you are you supporting a company like this? The Barefoot Secret Company had a situation a few years back when they couln't find a pure supply for their products with ginseng in them. Well guess what they stopped producing those products till they could get a pure raw product. None of their competiters batted an eye and just kept producing product.

We are about doing what is right even if it hurts the bottom line!
