I’m so excited to tell you about the sponsored Stonyfield Farm Tour I went on a couple of weeks ago! We’re big fans of Stonyfield’s organic plain yogurts, and I have to tell you how cool it was to eat their yogurt for breakfast and then, on the very same day, see exactly how it began at one of their farms. Talk about knowing where your food comes from!
While on this trip, we got to spend some time with the co-founder, Gary Hirshberg, and it was interesting to hear how Stonyfield originally started as an organic farming school—I had no idea!
When they were low on funding and trying to figure out their next step, they were sitting around eating some yogurt they’d made from their milk when they had a brilliant idea. 🙂 Soon after, as their yogurt business began to take off, they started to realize that they were having an even bigger impact on organic farming by helping farmers convert to organic and providing a need for their milk (to make the yogurt). This was a much bigger impact than just trying to teach farmers to make the switch on their own.
There are so many other (both unexpected + inspiring) things I saw and learned while on this trip in beautiful Vermont….
And, bonus, I got to meet and spend time with some great bloggers (IRL)! One in particular, Andie Mitchell, that I had connected with online quite a few years ago, even guest posted here on the blog, so it was super fun to meet in person!
Stay tuned because tomorrow I’ll be sharing a yummy grilled chicken recipe that I marinated in Stonyfield yogurt (along with some other flavors). The yogurt really tenderizes the chicken so be on the lookout for those details tomorrow! I hope you enjoyed hearing about the farm visit.
