If you’re looking for reasons to choose organic dairy products, you don’t have to look very far. Studies have shown organic milk from grass-fed cows is higher in beta-carotene and other nutrients and lower in unhealthy stress hormones. We’re big fans of organic milk’s role in this probiotic-packed organic yogurt from the veteran producers at Stonyfield Farm. Their whole-milk version is our favorite (for reasons explained in our upcoming September feature on the appeal of full-fat dairy). We also appreciate the efforts that Stoneyfield makes to conserve precious resources. By ditching the plastic lids on their 8-ounce containers, Stonyfield uses 16 percent less energy, creates 6 percent less solid waste and uses 13 percent less water in production.
