From checking on grass-fed cows grazing in the pasture to visiting the on-site creamery where organic milk is made into cheese, a day working alongside Organic Valley farmers at Stony Pond Farm is far from the ordinary routine most of us follow—which is what makes it so special.
After spending a day walking in the shoes of an Organic Valley farmer, mother-of-two Ereka Vetrini gained a new perspective on the love, care and passion that goes into organic farming on a family farm. "It was an incredible day full of new experiences," she says of memorable opportunities like hand-feeding a snack to a cow, sampling freshly made cheese and more.
Watch the video below to get a glimpse of Ereka's experience at the farm. (And keep reading for details on how you can win an all-expense paid trip for four to an Organic Valley farm!)
During her day, Ereka also got to witness first-hand what it's like to be an Organic Valley farmer: Unlike mega corporations, Organic Valley is a co-op that consists of more than 1,700 family farms throughout the country. That means Organic Valley is owned and run by farmers who are truly dedicated to making delicious organic food.
