I was lucky enough to attend an amazing Blogger event at the DOME OF VISONS hosted by Økologisk landsforening, and it was all about MILK and the eco cows that produced it. Us Danes are fond of buying organic produce, and these guys would like that we bought more.
I found the discussion so interesting - we talked about WHY we should support the Organic Farmers, and WHY Organic is better.
A few of the things that brought it home for me were: Not only is it much better for the environment; Eco-cows eat organic produce, and as no pesticides are used on the fields (= cleaner groundwater) Those fields have 30% more wildlife and plants, than the average field. The cows also go outside and eat grass all Summer (from April - November), making the milk taste fresh and delicious - hence the name #Sommermælk (Summermilk).
We were spoilt rotten by the clever chef Brian Mondrup and his team, who had prepared the best of the best of organic produce, and we got to wash it down with the white stuff. I've never drunk as much milk as I did this evening, and it was absolutely delicious.
Here are a few images from the event:

What is your opinion on organic produce? Do you buy organic? Is it normal in your country to buy organic? As a family we try to do our best to buy organic where we can, but it's not always possible, nor affordable. But we like to try - and every little step helps - the more people who buy organic - the cheaper it would get....
