Carrie O'Reilly, 29 - Redwing, Minnesota

Carrie was a city girl learning about sustainable agriculture in college at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse when she met her future husband Tony. She didnít know he was an organic farmer when they met and she really didnít know any organic farmers from her hometown area. Carrie was very excited about the things she had been learning in school and to this day they are still learning so much from each other on the farm. And, even better, they now are teaching their own children together. Carrie and Tony farm Green Acres Organic Dairy Farm in Redwing, MN with Tonyís brother Chris, shipping their milk to Organic Valley. Milking is a family event on the Green Acres farm because Carrie gets to talk to her husband about his day while her kids are always coming in and out of the parlor. The ability for her family to work side by side is a true blessing! In addition, the extended OíReilly family has two other farms that ship milk to Organic Valley. Carrie is excited to participate in the 2013 Teach-In because her own children have such a love for farming and she wants all kids to experience a little of what they live every day.
