Great photos. You can really see that in spite of all the hard work, The Webbs really love what they're doing. This story is a great example of the benefits of OV's business model and commitment.

What a great example of following a dream and putting in the work needed to acheive it! The best things in life don't always come to us with ease, so kudos to Tyler and Melanie for all they've achieved! Organic Valley milk tastes great and no wonder, their cows look happy and seem to truely be cared for. Can't wait to try their other products!

I would love to milk a cow. It is wonderful to see that cows seem so tender and have such responsability on their shoulders...to produce milk.

I Love Organic Valley products and I am so happy to see the real people behind it all. My son and I love your cream cheese by the bar and the cheddar & parm cheese!! Happy for you and hope more people do the same. I have family in Randolph VT its such a healthier place than NY even though I am still here on Long Island. Blessings keep up the great work!

Taking such a leap of faith shows others that following your dreams is worth all the hard work and sacrifice. It is wonderful they are giving back to the environment and that there ism support out there for such efforts like Organic Valley.

This is tremendous work and effort, not to mention major lifestyle change - to make all of the Organic Valley consumers health and life better. I'm hooked on all of the Organic Valley products; the newest of which is the Organic liquid yogurt - terrific product!! Praise and kudos to Webb's - keep up the great work. (love your butters too.....)!

I love this inspirational story. It's wonderful to learn more about farmers who care about what is going into our food supply and how everything we do affects the environment we live in.

Farming is one of those things I wish I could do, but at the same time growing up so far removed from the process from farm to table makes it seem completely intimidating. Maybe I will start with vegetables and slowly move into a hen house :) Love hearing positive stories like this!

They make me proud that I only give my baby girl Organic Valley whole milk. It is such an amazing company because of farmers like the Webbs.

I love this story. It takes a lot of courage to start off on a new venture that you have no experience in. And so inspiring to see that it's paid off for them!
