<div class="first column"> <p class="dataContent"><strong>Vital Green Farms</strong> is a family operated, local, organic dairy farm with on-farm processing, located just outside <strong>Picture Butte, Alberta</strong>. Their goal is to keep everything as close to nature as possible. This starts by feeding the soils with the natural nutrients that the plants take up and which in turn the animals eat and put into natures most miraculous food: <strong>MILK</strong>.</p> <p class="dataContent"><a href="http://blog.theorganicbox.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/image4.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-4292" src="/media/original_images/image4-1024x682.jpg" alt="image" width="680" height="452" /></a></p> <p class="dataContent"><strong>Joe and Caroline Mans</strong> absolutely love their cows and give them plenty of room to roam. With an average of 1 cow/acre, the cows love them too, and they produce amazing non-homogenized milk, which is not only bottled but made into the yogurts and cheeses that we love. All of their products are non-homogenized, which gives it the “good olden days taste". They pasteurize their products at low temperature, which is the minimum required by law.</p> <p class="dataContent"><a href="http://blog.theorganicbox.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/image-e1411689069875.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-4288" src="/media/original_images/image-1024x682.jpg" alt="image" width="680" height="452" /></a></p> <p class="dataContent"><a href="http://blog.theorganicbox.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/image1.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-4289" src="/media/original_images/image1-1024x682.jpg" alt="image" width="680" height="452" /></a></p> <p class="dataContent"><a href="http://blog.theorganicbox.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/image3.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-4291" src="/media/original_images/image3-1024x682.jpg" alt="image" width="680" height="452" /></a></p> <p class="dataContent">Vital Green Farms is the only independent organic dairy farm left in Alberta, and they produce some wonderful dairy!
