In this highly informative interview, Karen Preuss, Marketing Director of Hawthorne Valley Farm in central Columbia County, NY, describes the Farm’s commitment to organic farming practices based on the Rudolf Steiner philosophy about effective agriculture to sustain the earth. Throughout the year, the Farm invites children to participate in experiential learning (i.e., milking cows) so that they learn about nature and witness a working farm based on recycling. Ms. Preuss discusses topics such as raw milk, pasteurized versus non-pasteurized milk, sauerkraut’s benefits, the definition of “organic,” and how the consumer can identify products that are certified “organic.” The Farm offers various classes for all ages, including a class on cheese-making. The Farm’s store, open to the public, is interesting in itself, especially the produce department.
