Corporate Social Responsibility, Citizenship, and Diversity

Stony eld Farm was “founded as a project to help revitalize the struggling New England dairy industry and support family farms. Chairman/Founder Samuel Kaymen, one of the country’s early authorities on organic and biodynamic agriculture, and President/CEO Gary Hirshberg, an environmental activist, windmill maker, author, and noted entrepreneur,1 “wanted to teach people that food came from the earth and that sustainable agriculture is a food system with a future.”2 According to Kaymen and Hirshberg they “began with a few Jersey cows (the ones that make the sweetest milk) and a great-tasting yogurt recipe . . . we’re still committed to producing the besttasting, healthiest yogurts possible, and doing some good in the world while we’re at it.”3 “We’re committed to healthy food, for healthy people and a healthy planet.”4
