Stonyfield Farm Earth Day Giveaway

We are huge Stonyfield Farm fans in my house. Right now in our fridge you will find YoBaby 3-in-1 Meals, YoKids Yogurt and Super Smoothie drinkable yogurt. In fact, you can always find those 3 things in my fridge. My kids have not met a Stonyfield product that they didn't gobble up!Currently I am on a dairy free diet due to my nursing baby's milk protein intolerance. But if I wasn't dairy free I'd be eating their probiotic yogurt. I'd also love to try out their Oikos line of Greek yogurt. I have never tried Greek yogurt before but I heard its delicious plus is great to use in many recipes.

What is great about Stonyfield is not only do they make tasty organic products but they are truly a green company. They use clean renewable energy to help power their facility and they provide tremendous support for organic farms


We feel that healthy food can only come from a healthy planet – and through our organic ingredient purchases we have kept over 100,000 farm acres free of toxic, persistent pesticides and chemical fertilizers that can contaminate soil, rivers and drinking water.
For the past few months, Stonyfield has been following the daily life of organic farmer Guy Choiniere through his video diaries. Watching these is a great way to learn what happens on an organic farm. You can watch one videoe below and be sure to check out more on Stonyfield's FarmCam.

  2. I really loved the quote "The soil knows what to do. Let the soil do the work". That was so awesome. And I loved the fact that the other organic farmers had time to talk with them, where as the other farmers were too hectic to stop and talk. I think that says so much.

    Thanks for a chance to win.

  3. I really enjoyed learning about how much healthier the family has been since they went organic. Great! Thanks for the chance to win!

  4. I thought it was amazing that they have 42 different pads of land, and are able to switch their cows to a different grazing pad each day.

  34. This was a very inspiring video! I learned that Guy Coiniere visited other organic farms to learn how to become organic, and one farmer finally told him, "The soil knows that to do!" It was great to see his family (son, wife, and father) involved in the day to day farming life.

  46. I was impressed by his learning and understanding that nature really gives you all the tools you need. basically, you just need to get out of the way and let nature do its work.

  47. I liked that the family wanted to continue farming and researched alternative methods (organic) to sustain the whole family.

  48. To me, the most important statement in the video is "the soil knows what to do."

  54. The "The the soil do the work" quote is awesome. I can see the truth of that in my own backyard. The previous owners of our house used icky pesticides to "care" for their lawn, and we are going with an environmentally friendly company. In only one year, the flooding issue that we had had when we first moved in is much better, and our lawn looks just as healthy as our next door neighbor who goes the pesticide route.
