Conventional and Organic Farming: Both Are Important
Both methods of farming, Arizona Organic and Conventional farming are more alike than different. They both have well-established markets. They both use approved pesticides and they both feed us with the same level of nutrition.
Arizona Milk is Fresh; It Comes from Arizona Dairy Cows!
June is Dairy month! 97% of milk in our Arizona grocery stores comes from our local Arizona dairies where the cows make the freshest milk, cheese, and yogurt. A dairy cow will produce 7 to 8 gallons of milk every day.
Drink Milk. It’s Healthy For You
Look at Labels for products with “Milk” in the title: Dairy milk’s ingredient list is short —milk, vitamins A, and D. Non-dairy ingredient lists can be much longer and have 10 or more additives. Choose dairy milk, it’s real milk.

Arizona Agriculture Does More with Less
Arizona farmers grow more food and fiber with less – less land, less labor, less water, less soil erosion, less energy use, less greenhouse gas emissions – but with more efficiency and safety. Arizona farmers do more using fewer resources!
