Happy Father’s Day from the Next Generation

It doesn’t happen very often in the busyness of life when I sit back to look around and appreciate the world I live in and the little things in life. Tonight, however, we sat on the front porch of the farmhouse with my family, and I was able to do just that. Father’s Day is …

Going Organic

Two years ago, I joined Organic Valley / CROPP Cooperative as an intern. While I now proudly call myself a CROPPie, I must admit the first few months were a transition. Despite being born and raised in the dairy capitol of the world, I had little to no farming experience let alone organic farming experience. But learning …

Into the Driftless – A Special Housemate, A Better Neighbor: The Bat

When you move from the city to the Driftless country, there are a few things you have to get used to – businesses close by 5pm, buggy is an accepted form of transportation, and rifles are sold at Walmart. One thing that I’ve been more challenged to warm up to, is a small, winged visitor …

Earth Connections – Celebrating Earth Day

Every year at Organic Valley, we highlight Earth Week, and our Human Resources department finds many ways to engage us in connecting with the planet. One way to engage is the annual highway cleanup.

Feeling rooted, being rooted, Deep Rooted Greenhouses, the Rooted Spoon, getting back to your roots, Rootstock, the Root Note café—it all made me think to myself, “What a cool word, rooted!” It can mean a lot of different things to different people and …

Farm -er- Speak

Imagine this situation: You’re sitting in the Milky Way Cafe at Organic Valley headquarters in La Farge, Wisconsin eating lunch with your fellow employees. In runs a farmer whistling and yelling, “The cows are out!” What’s your reaction? Do you sit with your spoon or fork mid-air, mouth open, wide-eyed, heart racing? Do you stop …
