Soul of Farming |  A Good Dog | Organic Valley Farmers


The Amish community throughout the Midwest are very receptive to organic. I would say the reason we are organic is we simply believe that way. I mean, you look out and every creature you see, you know you’re not harming. That’s just so satisfying. It just seems so right. We spend a lot of time with our animals. We had quite a few horses that I could never sell. You become attached to certain animals. They become your friend. There’s another quote I like, “Lord, let me be the person that my dog thinks I am,” I’ve always had a dog for companionship. Just to be with me in the fields, when I go on walks. The dog is always there. And they’re just super smart animals, and loyal. I lived in Cleveland for two years being drafted during the Vietnam War, worked in a hospital. My wife and I came back to the farm in 1968, and have been here ever since. ‘Course, I’m not fully retired, but our daughter, Ann, and her husband, Kevin, milk about 45 cows. I think Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “A man standing in his own field is unable to see it,” And I think sometimes, that’s very, very true, because we’re around animals all the time and we just take ’em for granted, but there’s just this very strong sense of affection for animals that are working for you, and the only way I can repay the animals that work for me is with kindness and the best care I can give ’em. Just provide for every need. From the dogs, the cats, horses and cows. Everything on the farm, So, it’s nice to have a working dog that’s also a good friend. Rosie thinks I’m just the most marvelous thing that God ever created, And I think Rosie is, too. My name is David Klein, and we are your Organic Valley farmer.

  1. I truly love the videos from the farmers that are supply food to my family. Thank you for letting us meet you, your family and animals. Thank you for the efforts you do to produce healthy and mindful farming. I will continue to support my organic farmers and help keep the education and importance of good food=good health. Bless you for your hard work and care for us all.

  2. organic farming is only as good as the level of LOVE the people have
    in doing their DHARMA….this is my favorite brand of ORGANIC
    PRODUCTS that I look for my shopping list.
    I shop next door at DON QUIJOTE…and I always look at the
    cook behind the food pantry…when you see a person that really loves
    what she is doing..the food taste very delicious…then they sometimes
    hire workers…and it changes the value and quality of taste…
    as whoever prepares the food..their energy transmits to the food.
    MAKES A LOT OF DIFFERENCE…I often like those who are
    Buddhists that owns restaurants here in HONOLULU
    that prepares the food..as basically their practice of
    their consciousness is obviously peaceful and loving…
    IT REALLY REFLECTS in their JOB and what they do….

  3. Love your products… yogurt and milk is a daily thing for us. May your hands continue to be blessed by our heavenly Father.
