Horizon 2015 Hope Scholarships

Hope scholarship

Horizon Organic recently announced the two recipients of the 2015 Horizon Organic Producer Education (HOPE) Scholarships, an award that encourages young people to enter the field of organic agriculture. The students, each of whom will receive $2,500, are children or grandchildren of one of Horizon’s nearly 700 family farmers. With the launch of the HOPE Scholarship program in 2007, Horizon became the first national organic dairy brand to offer a scholarship program designed to build the next generation of organic leaders.

This year’s two scholarship recipients are:

· Mia Brown (Gouverneur, N.Y.), age 18, is the daughter of Horizon producers Gary Jr. and Colleen Tweedie of Beaver Creek Farm. Mia is a first-time HOPE Scholarship recipient. She began her freshman year at Morrisville State College in New York this fall, seeking a degree in animal science. Mia says her love of working with dairy cattle developed at age 6, when her parents gave her a calf. As she got older, she began buying her own cows, in hopes of one day owning a dairy farm. HOPE Scholarship committee member Margaret MiaBrown- HOPEScoles, executive director of International Organic Inspectors Association (IOIA), says Mia “conveys a depth of practical understanding of dairy production and passion for learning more about organic production.”



· Callie Brodt (Ferndale, Calif.), age 21, is a four-time recipient of the HOPE Scholarship and will graduate from Chico State in the spring of 2016 with a degree in agriculture business. Callie is the granddaughter of Horizon Callie Brodt-HOPEfarmer Jim Walker of Walker Dairy, and the sister of Horizon farmer Colton Brodt of Brodt Dairy. Callie credits the HOPE Scholarship for growing her passion and interest in organic farming. Callie plans to use her degree to help promote organic dairy farming. HOPE Scholarship committee member Steve Gilman, policy coordinator at Northeast Organic Farming Association Interstate Council, (NOFA-IC) says: “Callie shows an extraordinary level of commitment and passion for the success and growth of organic agriculture.”

The 2015 HOPE Scholarship recipients were chosen by a committee of organic industry leaders, including: Tracy Favre, organic inspector and former chief operating officer, Holistic Management International (HMI); Steve Gilman, policy coordinator, NOFA-IC; Margaret Scoles, executive director, IOIA; Faye Jones, executive director, Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES); Bob Scowcroft, a long-standing organic advocate who has served in various leadership positions for 35 years; and Glenda Yoder, associate director, Farm Aid.

Back-to-school fun with the Holderness family


There’s no point in denying it, back-to-school season is officially here. And while parents may be breathing a sigh of relief that their kids are heading back to class, there’s one aspect of the school year that we often dread: the early morning routine that most are all too familiar with. Our friends at SheKnows teamed up with Horizon Organic and the well-known Holderness family to change up their typical morning routine. The Holderness family reversed roles with their kids in a new video that parents (and anyone who’s ever been a kid) will enjoy relating to.
