It's great to hear that people still care about what they put in their bodies. I hope the rest of the farmers follow suit and improve our diet.

I find this story so very intriguing and inspiring to anyone who has a dream or a goal in life. I am still in college, attending the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I love that Tyler realized his passion for farming while he was still in school. I share the same determination as he does, but it involves business, more specifically, Marketing. He gives people who have read this story, some sort of hope and admiration that your dreams can come true! Way to go guys! You have great products too that I now love buying from you even more after reading your story!

As someone who has seen first hand the importance of buying good farm raised milk and soy products- I wish the Webbs all the best!

This is story is so inspirational. It's amazing how far your beliefs and values take you if you let them. It is so easy to take the easy route and not live to your full potential but when you do, you'll never regret you did.

I love reading about companies who obviously really care about our health and the health of our environment. The farmers highlighted in this story exemplify promoting quality standards, a caring for the earth, and how two people just making small steps can yield great results. Way to go Stony Pond Farm and Organic Valley!!

We support the Webbs, as they rejuvenate the soil and dignify life forms and the circle of life. Aren't we all supposed to be like this !!

Yay organic dairy! The milk tastes so much better! And it's nice to know the cows are being taken care of.

I think their hard work is a testament to the paradigm shift we are experiencing with the food industry in general. People are willing to work hard for something they believe in- not just for a paycheck. This is truly meaningful for us as consumers and employees! I can say that any other brand of dairy products makes my stomach hurt. Organic Valley is the only brand that doesn't cause this ailment for me. These farmers and suppliers are doing right by me- and countless others out there! Way to go!

There is only one dairy left in my county. There used to be many. I hope there will be more local dairies in the future!

Tyler & Melanie's story touched my heart. It's amazing that by taking a soil class in college not just changed Tyler's path in life but touched millions by providing safe, healthy dairy for our families. Sounds like devine interventions, Praise the Lord!!

I love hearing about individuals and organizations working together to better our food! We should be very thankful for families like the Webbs. I'm also glad to hear that Organic Valley is using renewable resources for a part of their production processes. Now more than ever is the time to start changing the way we view our food, where it comes from, and how we are producing it. Thanks for sharing the blog post!

I think it is wonderful how his fascination came to be and that they decided to take a leap of faith with this farm even though the odds were against them and with no experience they have created something so wonderful that benefits so many people now and I believe that it will just keep getting better!
