Little bare feet, brown with dust, as children explore the expanse of farmland that is their heritage.
That is the vision Chuck and Julie Johnston have for their three children. It’s also one of the reasons they bought their dairy, which is part of Organic Valley, the largest farmer-owned organic cooperative.
“We wanted our kids to grow up this way,” said Julie Johnston, who, with Chuck, has been on the farm for nine years now. “We bought all our equipment and bought our cows.”
