Stonyfield Organic - Blogger Barnstorming Tour

Okay, this is Just.Too.Cool to wait until next week! I'm sending this along just as I received it.  If you're a blogger and you're interested in real food, you won't want to skip over this:

I'd like to invite you to join us on The first-ever Stonyfield Blogger Barnstorming Tour!

We’re planning a fabulous summer road trip this June, you’re invited – and it’s all on us!

We’re gearing up for the first-ever Stonyfield Blogger Barnstorming Tour. The last weekend in June, we’re visiting organic dairy farms that supply Stonyfield with organic milk and we’re taking three bloggers along for the ride.

This is more than a road trip. This is a chance for you to get some mud on your boots---and learn first-hand why organic really is good for you and the planet. You’ll meet farmers who are true caretakers of the land and their animals, men and women who work hard every day to produce food for your table and your family. We’ve always believed they’re our everyday heroes – and you’ll feel the same way once you meet and talk with them. All questions welcome!

One farmer you’ll meet is into dirt. Organic dirt. He knows healthier soil means healthier crops to feed his cows, animals that get sick less and produce more milk. You’ll meet a farm couple who’ve raised their daughter practically alongside their cows – for them, farming is truly a family affair.

In other words, you’ll get a close-up, behind-the-scenes look at today’s organic farms, and the people who live and work on them. They’re the folks who make the Stonyfield yogurts your family loves possible.

Of course, we’ll have some fun, too – and if you want to wake up at 4 to watch morning milking or plod around a pasture, we’re game if you are.

The last stop is Stonyfield’s Yogurt Works, here in New Hampshire, where you’ll see what we do with all that wonderful organic milk---and how we craft the tasty Stonyfield yogurts that you have at home.

We want you to learn more about where your food comes from, and your readers will learn a lot, too. That’s why as a thank-you for blogging about your experience and sharing virtual ‘postcards from the road,’ we’ll donate $5,000 to your favorite worthy cause!

It’s easy to enter – just visit Read the rules, send us your entry, and by early May we’ll let you know if you’re one of our 10 finalists. Then we’ll leave it up to your blog readers and other Stonyfield fans to vote for their favorites. Final winners will be announced and packing their bags for the June 25-28 road trip.

Good luck!

Disclosure:  I have received no compensation for sharing this with you.  I just wanted to pass along (what I think is) a terrific opportunity!
