Doesn’t that look like the life? Depending on the region, Organic Valley dairy cows can spend up to six months on pasture each year. The rest of the time would be winter or a wet/dry season where the pasture isn’t growing, so the cows are fed stored forages and supplemental feed (just like how we humans eat preserved foods in the wintertime too).

A man and woman laugh and hold hands while walking in a pasture with cows behind them.

Julia Gasser with her husband, Greg, walking their pastures.

This is Julia Gasser. You might have seen Julia on Organic Valley’s Instagram feed. She shows off her farm frequently over there. Julia married into the Gasser family farm seven years ago. Her husband, Greg, is a fifth-generation farmer with his siblings and dad in Ohio. The Gasser family farm has been sending their 100% grass-fed milk to Organic Valley for 18 years! Hear how Julia’s cows enjoy a giant, nutritious salad bar every day and are 100% grass-fed all year long.

All that you see outside is inside the Organic Valley dairy products in your fridge! How awesome is that? The love and care that our farmers give their cows is evident in our delicious products.

Moving from winter into spring, how about a joyous little video of cows romping and playing as they are let out to pasture for the first time in spring! This one is sure to put a smile on your face (and the kids will love it!)

Finally, Organic Valley’s original 12 episode series, Soul of Farming, gets to the heart of why our dairy farmers love what they do.

We hope you enjoyed this sampling of farm tours from the comfort of your home. We have many more great videos from our farms on Organic Valley’s YouTube channel.
