Holy cow

All my life I've been eating dairy products by Clover Stornetta. Since I grew up about 30 miles south of their headquarters in Sonoma County, they were the main dairy brand in the grocery stores. Here in L.A. they're not as easy to find, but I've kept buying their line of organics because of my interest in humane farming.

I didn't realize, though, exactly the nature of the farm the organic milk is coming from:

One of many programs offered by San Francisco-based St. Anthony Foundation, St. Anthony's Farm is a residential drug and alcohol recovery program with a working organic dairy. As a Franciscan organization, it recognizes the inherent dignity of each person, and fosters relationships based on respect. St. Anthony's works with people who are disenfranchised and marginalized to help them regain that dignity and respect for themselves.

So this isn't just organic milk, it's organic milk raised by drug addicts and Franciscan monks. Wow! I wonder if Peter knows any more about this?

I know just about as much as you listed in the above paragraph. I know that the parish that my wife's parents attend in Petaluma sends youth volunteers out there every once in a while.
