In India, Organic Production Moves Beyond Being Just Chemical Free

November 28, 2010: 09:45 AM EST

Organic dairy producers in India are doing much more than raising chickens and cows without hormones, pesticides or herbicides. They are also ensuring that the animals are raised without stress or constraint. One company, Organic India, allows its cows to roam free as they graze and only milks them after the calves are fed. These “tension-free” practices ensure that its ghee – a form of clarified butter – is of the highest quality and purity. Keggfarms raises its chickens without chemical feed and in open areas with access to sunshine and fresh air. At Hare Krishna farm, which produces ahimsa milk made without harm to living animals, cows are milked to the sounds of Sanskrit prayers being chanted. Hara Krishna sells its ahimsa milk to the Hindu community in London for £3 ($4.68) a liter.
