I love Wallaby yogurt (I buy the large containers of plain) and it's great to see that they have a business they can be proud of and a commitment to organic that is better for us, and the cows too.

It is wonderful that they still have options to keep the cost down for consumers by using their own land to feed their cows. Sustainable practices are better for everyone.:-)

More businesses should go the way of Wallaby Yogurt. It' commendable that they are organic and ethical.

I'm so happy Wallaby went organic. Their yogurts are super-yummy, and it's good for everyone!

Wow, that's an awesome change. I like that they don't push for extra milk production from their cows. I'm really impressed with their story.

I think it is neat that the cows were more efficient with organic- shouldn't everyone do this then!? I love Wallaby yogurt... I just need stores closer to me to carry it!

I only eat yogurt that is organic (as well as most other dairy) so I am excited to try theirs. The flavors have looked really interesting but I have not purchased their yogurt before but now I will!

I really appreciate the respect for the animals the Beretta farm shows. Can't wait to try this yogurt out.

Awesome to be supporting family farms! So curious about why this NorCal brand is called Wallaby.

I think it's great that they remain committed to treating everyone right from the animals, employees and customers. I wish more companies were like this!

I have had Wallaby Yogurt, it's very excellent. Love all the different and unique flavors. Very glad that the Beretta family is commited to ethical standards and organic farming. Happy cows produce the best milk because they are not under stress.

Doing the right thing by sourcing ingredients locally, insisting on organically raised cows and treating everyone in the production and sales process fairly. Bravo Wallaby Yogurt!

God bless the family farmer! What a great story. I can't wait to buy Wallaby yougurt. Thank you for sharing the story and video. It makes the taste of the product better when you know the care that went into making it and the philosophy of the company. Thank you! PS I have confidence that your yougurt will be wholesome for my 92-year old mother-in-law, too!

I think the switch from conventional to organic is an important one, for the health of the environment, consumers, and animals.

You had me at "being on grass instead of concrete is a lot easier on the legs and feet of the cows". No duh. I'm in. Can't wait to try it.

I think that the slideshow was really good and very informative. The Beretta Family switching to Organic is wonderful. It is natural for the cows. And makes it more efficient and better for the cows.

I think it is great that Wallaby is working with organic, small family-run dairies. Not only does it help create a great product but also helps support local businesses and communities.

I must say I have tasted the best yogurt ever! Your fat free vanilla bean yogurt is my favorite! I tell everyone about it! It does NOT taste fat free!

While I've tried many varieties of Greek, French, Canadian and domestic yogurts, I am a Wallaby addict... Their flavors are bright, fresh and taste "real", without any unpleasant aftertaste. They have a great array of flavors and styles (mixed or fruit/goodies on the bottom). I applaud Beretta Farm for going to natural grazing and I applaud Wallaby for working with them. This kind of responsible production cements my loyalty to the brand.

I have never tried Wallaby yogurt, but the next time I go shopping I will look for it in the store.

I am all about doing well while doing good. I wish that more people would follow the example of Wallaby and the Beretta family.
