   Dairy Farmers Experiencing An Organic Milk Surplus As Sales Of Almond, Soy Milk Rise

After responding to increased demand from consumers, dairy farmers have now found themselves with a surplus of organic milk. Shoppers have been opting for plant-based alternatives like almond milk more often than organic cow’s milk, leaving the industry with more of the very perishable organic product than retailers can sell.
