I saw an advertisement yesterday for Borden, in which they claimed to be extremely healthy and beneficial to the American farmer. Because of the dangers of rBGH, I decided I wanted to check into it. After all, if it is a healthy product, AND it supports our farmers, then I definitely want to support Borden!
I went directly to the source: http://www.bordenonline.com and http://friendsofelsie.com.
It’s true, Borden does not use rBGH or any other artificial growth hormones!
In addition, Borden gets its dairy products through a co-op program called Dairy Farmers of America, Incorporated. Over 17,000 farmers are members of Borden’s co-op. Milk is delivered quickly to local stores, so Borden’s products are fresh! This means, that not only are you stimulating your local economy by purchasing Borden, but the dairy products are coming from family farms, not commercial farms.
I’ve talked before about buying local by visiting local farmer’s markets. Buying Borden milk, cheese and butter will also support your local farmers. In addition, by buying Borden products, you are also supporting your children’s health.
By visiting Borden’s website, you can view information on their farms local to you, their organic farm in Austin, Texas and meet the farmers in your area. What other company shows you everything up front?
I am in no way affiliated with Borden, Elsie or Dairy Farmers of America. I was merely playing a game on my iPhone when an ad popped up for Borden, claiming it was healthy…this prompted my research, to see if Borden dairy products were as good as they claimed. And they are! My family will definitely start buying Borden. 🙂
