Glad Beretta Family Organic Dairy made the switch to organic processes and partnered with Wallaby. Organic farming is not that lucrative but it is better for everyone . . . from the cows to the people eating the yogurt. Thanks Beretta for making the change and as Claudia said you become successful when you treat people right . . . Beretta Family, to you, much success!!

I'm glad to hear that efficiency is up after going organic. I worry about America's dairy farmers and hope that by going organic they're able to make a better living. I would be interested to know if Beretta Farms saw higher profit margins with the change to organic. I applaud companies like Wallaby who make a commitment to farmers and encourage them to make changes like this.

I'm certainly glad they went organic - my family and I LOVE Wallaby yogurt! Their success as organic farmers also shows that the switch to organic is not only good for the farm in a business sense, but also the earth, the consumers, their animals - everyone involved!

I celebrate the fact that the Wallaby yoghurt took things back to basics and proved it cost effective. I tasted the dark chocolate flavor and I eat it all the time. I use the European styled sour cream for all my cooking needs. It really makes my food taste fresher, and they become something I am really proud to serve to my family.

I've loved their yogurt because of the taste and variety, but now I love them a little more for their commitment to the planet and to future generations.

It is refreshing to hear that profit is not the end-all reason for this partnership. Family farms are having a tougher time staying afloat and it is terrific to see an organic family farm being recognized and utilized so well. Hurrah!

Every company that chooses to go organic helps to save our planet. I applaud Wallaby for their initiative, and their yogurt is amazing. The government supports factory farming with subsidies. Consumers can step up to make that difference and make organic farming viable buy purchasing organic products whenever possible. We aren't a powerful lobby, but there are more of us. We CAN make a difference.

My son loves Wallaby yogurt. It is YUM! And what's even better is finding out that the yogurt is made from grass fed cows. The product is better for the customer, better for the farmers, for the cows, ... For everyone.

Thank you for taking the time to do it right. The more organically we eat - the less chemicals we injest - helps everyone in the long run. You should be proud!

I'm very pleased they have chosen to go organic and also think it makes for a better quality of life for the cows who will in turn produce better milk because of these ideal conditions. It is a win-win for the farmer, the animals, and the consumers purchasing their products. Glad to see farmers with a conscious.

Its nice to read that people actually consider the comfort and health of the cows.

As a prior vegan, I was thrilled to know that the welfare of the animals(having greater access to pasture) was a concern for the Wallaby company.

It is the best yogurt I have encountered as yet. And when it comes to their organic practices, it sounds like "less is more" - more production, more earth & animal-friendly and more flavor.
