You can always smuggle in Quebec cheese under cover of darkness. It's damn good cheese.

They come to the milking parlor when they hear their name called, not with cattle prods and whips.

IF you're lucky enough to be near farm country, it's worth it to know you done your part to buy your food locally and it is organically raised.
I'm not sure I like the idea of eating chickens that peck their food out of cow crap.

I would never buy organic dairy products. Cows can get sick anywhere. It happens. Non-organic dairy farms can treat sick cows with medication, organic dairy farms can't. So they either send the sick cow to slaughter or leave them to suffer untreated until they either die or get better on their own. It's a cruel practice, IMHO.

BTW, cows don't come to the milking parlor under duress at normal dairy farms either. It's painful for them to go too long without being milked. They WANT to be milked.

That's just Smugglers Blues, where Canada will be the new South America. They say Scarface drove alcohol over the frozen Great Lakes during Prohibition.

I see it now, tasty little wheels of cheese, aged on wooden boards, strapped to the underside of stolen schoolbuses, being smuggled across the border from Canada. Bush was a FOOL to built that wall between California and Mexico - the danger was from the NORTH!

I can see it now on an episode of Pawn Stars.

Rick: What do we have here.

Customer: I have a wheel of Canadian Cheddar Cheese.

Rick: How much are you trying to get for it.

Customer: I would like $500.

Rick: When it comes to Canadian Cheddar Cheese there are a lot fakes out there. Before I can make an offer I need to have someone sample it. I know this guy that knows everything there is to know about cheese.

...and with the price averaging about $56 a kilo, can you imagine what the markup will be after the smugglers get paid?
Fromage will be the new currency. You'll need financial advisors.
"Should I invest in Cendrillon, the creamy award-winning goat cheese covered in ash, or OKA, the nutty sybaritic delight made by Trappist monks?'
