Here at Stonyfield, we are passionate about our environment, and keeping it safe and healthy for all generations to enjoy. We hope to instill that same passion in you. At the end of the day, it all comes down to sustainability – that is, creating and maintaining the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations. Some of the important ways to help sustain the environment are organic farming and responsible ingredient sourcing.

To help you better understand organic farming practices and their benefits, and how they relate to life on the family farm, we have created the HAVE A COWSM program that connects you, the consumer, to direct supply farms, the farmers, and the cows who provide the milk. Through this program you will learn what a direct supply farm is, you’ll meet some of the farmers, and you’ll also meet some of the cows who provide the milk. You’ll learn how these farms use organic farming practices and the benefits they achieve by going organic.
When you sign up for the HAVE A COWSM program, you can choose to “follow” a cow via email newsletter to learn about how it’s raised, what farm it lives on, and how organic farming works. Through these updates, you will learn about organic farming and responsible ingredient sourcing, and how each benefits the environment.
