I never thought I would find interest in farming before last year. I went abroad to Finland and stayed with a family of dairy farmers and a family that farmed grains. I came home with a completely different outlook on everything. I try to support local farmers as much as I can when buying my groceries. I also changed my major in school from astrophysics to environmental science and forest resources. The fact that the Webbs were brave enough to start dairy farming is inspiring. It is nice to know that part of the younger generation is interested in agriculture as well. Cheers for the Producers of Produce:)

This video really gives me hope and motivation. I am a young, extremely passionate human being concerned to restore the food cycle and localism. Just like the couple in the story, I want to one day soon be able to work some land sustainably to sustain my self and family. Like the Webbs, I am the new generation of farmers, small but effective.

I really enjoy knowing there are still not only people but young people willing to work hard and take the initiative to make a difference with a little vision that turned to reality! I think we all can learn from them, I know I have and will be inspired to turn my dreams to life!

Its inspiring to see young people pursuing sustainable and humane farming. This is a perfect example of living what you believe in. They managed to find a company to supply to that shares their beliefs, and learned everything they needed to to make their dream a reality. Its amazing to see hoe well all of their hard work paid off!

Fantastic Story! Jersey cows are a great breed and the ones in the video are some of the happiest cows I have ever seen!

Tyler and Melanie Webb are to be commended for the hard work they do to keep their world and others organic. More than ten years ago my homeopathic physician told me to eat and drink organic foods. At that time our world was not as knowledgable about eating organic as it is today. I now do my best to find the best in organic foods and drinks. "Kudos" to Whole Foods and the Webbs and their young child giving so much to make the world a better place.

I love that so many people have the desire and passion that I have. You have actually fulfilled a dream and that is completely awesome especially coming from the city and not being raised on a farm. It can be culture shock to certain people but if you love what you do then there will never be a problem that you can not overcome. I also love that you use renewable resources to help with your farm. This is the life I aspire to have one day, rather sooner than later. Good luck in all that you do and strive to do more.

Inspiring. I feel so thankful for these family farmers who produce milk from ethically treated cows and care about the surrounding ecosystem too. It really is all connected!

Great job, you are truly dedicated and you provide quality products from your "family" to ours. I was also impressed with the cleanliness of your farm.

I have gotten picky about which organic products I'll buy, since many organic products are still produced on cruel factory farms. That is why I have become Organic Valley's biggest fan, because they support great family farms like Tyler and Melanie's! Great spotlight. Happy cows. Love it.

Our younger son will only drink Organic Valley Milk! We even gave him a 'blind' taste test using OV, and one other organic milk and some store brand milk. He took one taste of the store brand, and said, Ick. That is not good milk! He picked out his favorite - 2% Organic Valley Milk! Keep up the good work:-) Lanie Jewell
