Moo-ve over cow’s milk, it’s the other white milk – goat’s milk – that is the “Greatest of All Time” (G.O.A.T.).

Moo-ve over cow’s milk, it’s the other white milk – goat’s milk – that is the “Greatest of All Time” (G.O.A.T.). Out to set the record straight, are the women owner/operators of three best-in-category makers of goat’s milk products. Joining together for the greater good of the goat this trio of successful, entrepreneurial women has launched a consumer education campaign to communicate the health and environmental benefits of goat’s milk. Laura Howard, of Laloo’s Goat Milk Ice Cream, talks with Phil about the many benefits of goat’s milk and foods made from goat’s milk, and the efforts of their campaign.

A federal appeals court ruled last week, overturning a lower court decision, that a group of California almond farmers have the right to challenge a USDA regulation requiring the treatment of their raw almonds with a toxic fumigant or steam heat prior to sale to consumers. For the past three years, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has denied American consumers the right to buy raw almonds, grown in the USA, when they shop in grocery and natural food stores. Will Fantle, of The Cornucopia Institute, a farm policy and research group that has been coordinating the legal strategy and the lawsuit brought by 13 California almond growers, joins Phil with the details.
