I am on my way to Whole Foods, to purchase Wallaby Yogurt, I can't wait to try it. After watching FOOD,INC. the documentary, I can't believe how ignorant I have been as a consumer. I am supporting local farmers with my pocketbook from now on. Keep up the fantastic work! CHEERS!

Commitment is key - sometimes that is what it takes to do what seems to not make business sense....their products are great. Thanks for the story.

Dare I say it, but those cows almost look like they are smiling! Organic farming is truly the best process for all living things involved and the happiness truly shines through all the way to the yogurt! I open the lid of a Wallaby yogurt to a great smell, appearance, texture, and taste each and every time!

Congrats, Wallaby, on working with small farmers like the Beretta family! The cows sound healthier and the yogurt has got to taste better!

It always brings a smile to my face when I hear that switching to organic not only made the cows happier but the people as well. They should be teaching classes to get more farmers and companies to do this! My hubby is hooked on Peach currently and our cats love to lick the rip off top when he opens one up. Can you please make a plain? I have to buy another brand when I use it in baking and cooking. Thanks!

Love any company that takes care of the animals and farms that are necessary for that company's success. Also, love seeing family farms being utilized because the big corporate farms are only about profit, it seems, no matter what. What the Beretta Family - along with Wallaby- is doing is better for all of us in the long run and wish more people would care so much.

I'm really happy to read about this connection back to and reminder of where my food comes from. Makes it taste better too! Thank you!

That is a great story. It only costs pennies more to eat fine products like Wallaby. When will the US catch up to the rest of the world and ban artificial growth hormones. I guess Monsanto's political lobby has mucho influence on the USDA.

Love it! Pride in workmanship and honor trump greed... always! Thanks for respecting that which nourishes us instead of abusing nature to pad your wallet.

Wallaby is our family's favorite yogurt, especially the plain drizzled with honey and topped with organic Colorado peaches. So glad the Beretta family (including the cows) experienced such a wonderful increase in their quality of life when they switched to organic processes.

I grew up in rural Wisconsin, right across from a corn field and down the road from a dairy farm. It brings a smile to my heart to know the small farmer is still important in a big way...helping to produce health-friendly products in a natural environment. Thanks to the Beretta family and Wallaby for what they have done!

I absolutely love to hear when a company switches to organic. It's so much better for everyone. I wish other companies would follow.

Going to grass-feeding as much as possible is always a good thing ..... for cows and humans. And putting humane concerns above maximum profits is almost reason enough to buy organic from Wallaby.

Yes! I am so happy to see that companies are coming around to the idea of working with real farmers who live on their land running family businesses! As Doug quoted the company, organic family-oriented farming may not be the way to make as much money as possible, but it is certainly the best way to promote health, well-being, and responsible stewardship of the Earth while making a living. Bravo.
