The article presents information on Organic Dales, a milk processing and marketing business owned by dairy farmer Steven Lofthouse in North Yorkshire. Lofthouse describes the business as an interface between organic producers and retailers. One example of how the business operates can be illustrated by his relationship with farmer-processors Gary and Tom Rawson, a father and son team who are already retailing their organic Clever Cow-branded milk and cream to outlets close to their farm near Dewsbury.
