Grant a Farmer a Wish

You may or may not know this, but Stonyfield yogurt and ice cream is made from milk produced on Organic Valley farms. We often get asked why Organic Valley doesn’t make its own yogurt and that is the reason why. We are making it, just under a different label. The partnership came to being about a year ago and a half ago.

Right now Stonyfield is Granting Farmer Wishes to six deserving Organic Valley farm families. Each of these families submitted a grant application to their operations. Their proposals had to show a positive environmental impact, innovation and the ability to sustain organic farming practices. Stonyfield is giving away $10,000 to the top applicant, two $7,500 awards and three $2,000 awards.

The winners are chosen by YOU. You need to visit the Stonyfied Facebook page to cast your vote. Voting ends February 28, 2011. Tell your friends about the page too. The more votes the better!!
