People often don't understand the impact it can have, but a miscarriage is still the loss of a baby.

We have planned on making trips out to Fresno for supplies! So that's always an option. Plus my husband is from monterey, so we go there often too. Milk isn't really something you can stock up on, though, because it goes bad so quickly. Oh well, I guess we'll figure it out. We can CERTAINLY stop by some of the dairies that are local and see what they're all about.

obviously you dont have to answer my questions but why NOT plant based milks? your huband wouldnt be giving anything up. almond milk tastes sooo much better than cow, soy, and rice milk in my opinion. if anything, you will benefit from lower cost (instead of driving elsewhere many times), you can stock up no problem, better flavor, it's actually healthy for you, and peace of mind in knowing that its animal-friendly.

Just remember free range is more a marketing tool than fact. All free range means is the animal has access to the outside some part of the day. Five minutes would be considered free range.

Because they are a niche market. A small customer base with high demand in that customer base.

Horizon has had some controversy about the care of their animals. I'll see if I can find some info.



Here's an article:

Thanks for the article, Ludi. I always thought free range was better than regular store brands. I guess I should get my own chickens and a cow and put them in my backyard and produce free range products
