Best of 2009: Revisiting The Scene at Mecox Bay Dairy

Here's a video post from July highlighting some of the differences between smaller farms where the cattle eat grass (cows' natural diet) and behemoth industrial operations where corn is the main component of the feed.

The Scene at Mecox Bay Dairy
(July 6, 2009)

This weekend I visited Mecox Bay Dairy, which has the only dairy herd on Long Island. Mecox produces outstanding cheeses using raw milk from grass-fed cows.

This is a much different scene than what would be found at a Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO), where almost all of our meat and dairy products come from.
