This week I had the pleasure of visiting my first dairy farm! And not just any dairy farm but an organic one! Organic Valley “…their philosophy and decisions are based on the health and welfare of people, animals and the earth. They are a mission-driven cooperative, owned by family farmers, and we’ve been leaders in organic agriculture from the very beginning.”
Over this last year I’ve been trying to make a better effort when it comes to what I eat and exercising regularly. unfortunately I’ve been slacking on both of those and I can definitely feel it in the way I feel and by how I look. Thanks to Leah of Mamvation I was given the opportunity to go behind the scenes and see what the day in the life of an organic dairy farmer is all about. Leah is a big supporter of healthy living practices to combat disease.
Organic Valley Family of Farms is the largest organic farmer-owned cooperative in North America. Being a cooperative means that the farm families that produce Organic Valley’s organic dairy products, juice, eggs, meat, soy, and produce are the direct owners of the business.
