i think that the hard work put into raising good ingredients that you put into the foods is very important,because if you don't you could be harming someone and their health.

This is an inspiring story! It's great when people take chances like this and then become successful. The attention paid to sustainable energy sources and to taking good care of the animals is wonderful. I love seeing the baby being taken around the farm, what a great way to grow up. Most of all, I am grateful to Organic Valley for providing us with such great products and for using small farmers like the Webbs.

Happy to contribute in my small way to sustainable farming by buying OV lactose free milk (cheaper than Lactaid) and going to my local farmers market for whatever is in season. Love that young people are going into sustainable farming. They are the way of the future.

It is so great that we not only get to eat delicious organic food, but also learn more about the people that make it happen. Just another reason I love Whole Foods, Organic Valley, and the changes they are making to the American idea of good food.

I think the Webbs are incredible, their dedication and commitment to sustainability and the cooperative. Their products are great, especially the eggs and milk -unbeatable quality.

I am glad for the Webb's. My wife has been reading a lot of books and articles on organic farming. During the last 3 years we have made drastic changes in what we eat. We still need to do better, but organic food has become and will remain a staple. There is nothing like eating an organic piece of fruit or vegetable. Keep up the good work.

This is a great story to be told. We need more young people getting into farming. It seems like most farmers these days are older people and young people are not jumping to be their successors. We have to realize that our food isn't grown by robots.

This is the brand I seek out, which I actually discovered when I moved to Oregon 5 years ago. It's funny that this blog was posted because just the other night I was watching a show and the character took a carton from their fridge with a logo that was (or more likely looked like) Organic Valley and I got all excited, silly, I know :) Thanks for making such great products!
