A message from OrganicEye leadership: Mark Kastel, Terry Shistar, and Jay Feldman —When it comes to preserving organics as an alternative to the chemical-intensive farming and food production system that is destroying our environment and health:
WE WON’T BACK DOWN.
We are OrganicEye. We Have the Power to Impact Our Future and We’re Doing Something About It.
Join the OrganicEye leaders, with their over 116 years of industry oversight, in building a new and important asset for the community. The organic farming movement started as a values-based industry. It was built on a loving, collaborative relationship between family-scale farmers and shoppers willing to pay for food produced based on superior environmental stewardship, humane animal husbandry and economic-justice for the people who produce our food. OrganicEye’s mission is ensuring these values and commitments are not compromised in the modern food system.

Being all sequestered at home now, here is an interesting story on home technology and a bit of nice ink for OrganicEye and Beyond Pesticides in Wisconsin’s largest-circulation newspaper (the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). The reporter is a long time business and agricultural journalist who I’ve worked with for at least a quarter-century (now being furloughed by Gannett one week per month—newspapers, that were already struggling, are in crisis because of an instant drop and ad revenue as a result of so many businesses beings shuttered).
