I really like the fact that Beretta Family Dairy made the switch from conventional to organic processes, it is going back to nature, treating the animal well, which in turn is creating a product which treat us well! Wallaby Yogurt!

I like that they support local family farms, not the huge anonymous farm factories. And the fact that efficiency went up after the changes is great!

Wallaby Yogurt is our family's favorite yogurt by far - the flavor, texture and variety is outstanding. I feel great choosing it knowing the commitment they've made to organic ingredients sourced by family farms like the Berettas. Kudos to the Beretta Family who are farming for all the right reasons & are getting the recognition they deserve for the changes they have made. Much continued success to the Beretta Family & Wallaby. We'll do our part to support you! By the way, our kids love your new Joey line.

The Beretta family talks about treating people right. It seems to me that they are treating their cows right, also. Way to go, Beretta family!

Kudos to Beretta for making the switch to organic dairy farming. That is a tough choice, to make the change and not focus entirely on the dollar signs, but rather what is right for the cows, the environment and the consumers.

I think it really shows a love for the animals and the product they create. I like that the heifers give what milk they can and are not stressed or improperly fed to accomplish an output that would be unhealthy & unnatural for the animal.

We LOVE this yogurt! We have it as a healthy dessert almost every night! We add fresh strawberries and blueberries and pretend they are ice cream parfaits...yum!!!

It's an inspiration to read the Beretta story! Peaceful cows, allowed to graze as nature intended, provide healthy milk without the stress hormones of assembly line cows and everyone benefits. Bravo to the caring Barettas and to Wallaby for uniting to create a very delicious organic yogurt.

It's amazing to hear that when they went organic, their cows became more efficient. I guess it's true -- happy cows produce more milk. :-)

I've been enjoying Wallaby yogurt for about 4 years now. I love the texture and the unique flavors they offer. It's great that they support family farms. I applaud Beretta Family Organic Dairy for making the switch to improve milk quality while also giving their pasture-raised cows a better quality of life.

I love the balance by which the Beretta family produces feed on their land for their cows: THis full-circle thinking is most appealing!

I think their decision is not only better for the health of those consuming their products, but better for the animals and the environment.

I felt very good after about the berretta farm after viewing their video. They are treating their animals in a way that is humane and natural. I applaud their commitment to organic production and would definitely try wallaby yogurt.
