Wow, it's incredible that someone so young and who grew in NY would want to be not only farmers, but organic farmers. If only there were more people in the world with this kind of determination and work ethic. We're going to need lots more farmers like the Webbs in the future to grow our livestock and crops in this healthier and more natural way.

I think what the Webbs is doing is fantastic. Local, true farming is hard to come by these days. And because of that rarity, people are becoming more aware of what they are putting into their bodies. The Webbs supply exactly what those people are looking for - natural and organic substances that will allow you to get all of the necessary goods out of your food. Keep on farming, Webbs. We love you.

I buy this brand often and its neat to see where it starts. Its not just a faceless brand but something that independent farmers and families put their hard work into.

I just love this story. Organic agriculture done by people who did not grow up farmers is an especially daunting task. Wanting to be a farmer myself, I studied sustainable agriculture at UC Davis, worked on a farm, and worked for a small farm support organization in California. Farming is one of the biggest commitments there is especially when you have animals. There are no paid vacations, weekends off, or down time to be sick. Dedication to making a quality, earth friendly product is clearly what keeps these farmers going. Joining together in a co-op makes their product reasonably priced and I for one and thankful I can count on this product to be local and to support family farms. Kudos to the Webbs!
