Follow organic dairy farmer Jonathan Gates as he reports weekly from his Vermont family farm. Howmars Farm is a certified organic dairy farm, one of many Organic Valley/CROPP Cooperative farmer members who supply the milk that goes into making Stonyfield's yogurts and smoothies. The entire family pitches in on this third-generation farm. Check out some of the happenings on his farm and post your comments. Jonathan loves to get feedback from readers.

WHATíS UP WITH THE COWS DOWN ON THE FARM?

It seems rather obvious to say this, but Stonyfield Farm yogurts wouldnít be possible without cows and the farmers who tend them. Stonyfield Farm believes that family farms are a better alternative because the farmers tend to live on the land that they are stewarding and, therefore, are much more careful about the inputs to the land and their animals. Certainly certified organic family farms are better for the planet, for the cows and for you. Here at the Bovine Bugle Blog we want to introduce you to the everyday challenges facing a family trying to make an organic dairy farm work. Our farmer ìreporterî Jonathan Gates will give us the daily news from Howmars Farm in Franklin, Vermont. We want you, wherever you are, to come here to visit the farms we get to visit, and to ask a lot of questions. And we hope youíll get to know the cows.
