Win $300 of Free Dairy Products from Horizon Organic!

Horizon Organic® – A Fantastic Company and a Fabulous Prize…

I have fallen in love with a dairy company… and it is not only because they are giving one of you approximately $300 worth of FREE dairy products (our lucky winner will receive about 60 gift certificates for Horizon Organic products – each with a value of $4.99! That is about $300 worth of groceries – how cool is that?)

I am so impressed with this company because of its commitment to organic farming AND because it offers fantastic organic dairy products like their new DHA Omega-3 milk, the only organic milk enhanced with an Omega-3 fatty acid that helps support heart, brain and eye health. (The company sent us a few liters of this milk to sample and it tastes great!)

horizondhamilk.jpgWhat is DHA and why do we want it in our milk?

DHA is found primarily in fatty fish and organ meats, and most Americans, especially kids, don’t eat enough of these foods to get the recommended amount of DHA in their diets. But it is a tricky problem to solve – the FDA and EPA recommend that young children limit their fish intake to 3 servings/week due to potential mercury contamination. According to expert Dr. Greene, “Most American kids are not getting the DHA they need. The typical three-year-old needs about 150 mg of DHA a day. On average, they are only getting about 19 mg, a tiny fraction of what they need for optimal brain growth.”

So adding DHA enhanced milk to our diets is a simple, kid-friendly solution to get your kids the DHA that their bodies need for healthy development. I am so sincerely thrilled with this concept, that Horizon Organic has totally won me over!

horizon-cheese.jpgAnd so when I go to buy my DHA milk from the dairy aisle, I am also going to try out their other products. They have got all the dairy products we could want, like cheese, yogurt, butter and cottage cheese – and for the fun stuff they even have products like cheese strings, yogurt tubes tubes and ice cream. horizon-yogurt.jpgAnd of course all the Horizon Organic dairy products are certified organic and meet the strictest USDA organic standards. That means they’re produced with no antibiotics, no added growth hormones and no dangerous pesticides. Yes – we like that!

Now that you are as excited as I am (okay – I know it is dairy for goodness sakes – but I am a mom – I get excited about things like DHA and organic farming!) make sure you leave your comment so that you can have the chance to be the lucky winner of the 60 gift certificates for FREE Horizon Organic dairy products (approx $300 value!!!)
I just wish I could enter this contest myself!

All you need to do is leave your comment here and link back to this contest from your blog (and please link to Horizon Organic as well) to qualify for the drawing. As usual, non bloggers are welcome to participate too. (This contest is limited to the US as the gift certificates are only good in the US.) We will announce the winner Thursday, July 26th, 2007. All entries must be in by Thursday, July 26th at 12am Eastern.

Good luck – and enjoy your milk! :)

    Count me in as well! This is a great giveaway. I’ve long been a fan of this company and I’m crazy for organic stuff, which is healthy – but also expensive!So this prize is just the ticket. I’m off to post this on my blog as well.

  2. Angela says

    I’m a new shopper to the Horizon organic. My sister in law brought some along camping over the 4th of July. I’m hooked!

  3. Angela says

    I have an organic only family, so this would be perfect for us. It gets pricey to buy all organic all the time (especially as a single parent going through the adoption process). Please enter me into the contest! My bank account will thank you and Horizon for all eternity!

    I love Horizon too! We used to live in MD and we took our girls with another family to one of their farms. It was so much fun to see how they package their things. Horizon is a great company and I am always willing to pay a little more for my milk knowing it doesn’t have anything weird in it.

    This contest from Horizon would be SOO much fun to win, but I’ll still by Horizon things not matter what.

    So glad you all found this great company.

  6. Ally P says

    Yuuuuuuummmmmy!!!! My kids are die hard milk drinkers… I try to feed my kids organic food as often as possible.

  7. Crystal D says

    Wow that is a wonderful prize!!! Sign me up!
    I am on my way to pick up milk now and I always buy Organic.

  8. says

    What a great contest. the little one will be starting milk in 3 months. What perfect timing. I also worry about the added hormones and such in milk and meat and how they affect our growing girls.

  9. Jenn in AZ says

    I would love to enter this contest! We are trying to eat better and more organic–just healthier!

    Thanks!

    Goodness gracious! What a wonderful opportunity! As a one income family – our budget is worked out to the dime :) – but one thing we try to do as much as possible, is buy organic. Sometimes that means that we buy less of the ‘fun’ stuff, but you know what, the ‘real’ stuff tastes so much better and is so much more satisfying. Enough soap box :) Thank you for the great opportunity to enter. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to win so badly ! :)

  11. says

    We go through 6 – 8 gallons of milk a week. This would be such a boon for us! My kids love milk, cheese and yogurt and love for them to have it. I try to buy organic when I can but its so much more expensive but delicious! Can’t wait to see if we win.

  12. says

    this is the only milk we drink- skim at that. My dh switched because of the great taste but I did it to not give my children hormones and antibiotics unnecessary to them. Ever wonder why our kids are so big- in size and weight? It’t the hormones… think about it- they give the cows hormones to help produce more milk.. my girls need to stay girls until it is time for them to mature- with a healthy diet! We all need antibiotics to work when they need to..

    love Horizon!

  13. says

    We ABSOLUTELY LOVE Horizon products. My daughter can’t get enough of their milk! I hope to win this contest…..those coupons would so come in handy around here.

  14. Brooke says

    Horizon milk is so yummy that I have been known to drink an entire half gallon in a day all by myself. Count me in!

  15. says

    This would certainly help keep my family in dairy products for a while!! You know… three a day, every day! Added Omega3 and DHA! That’s awesome stuff!

  16. says

    Please enter me for this giveaway! Love Horizon products but don’t get to buy them too often b/c of the budget. What a wonderful contest :)

  17. says

    Oh! Wow! Count me in! We go through 10 gallons AT LEAST a month! Plus! Tons of cheese and yogurt! And we LOVE Horizon products! I grew up on that stuff, but because of the budget- we don’t buy it :(!!! This would be AWESOME!

  18. says

    Oh, this would be AWESOME to win. I have twin boys who have recently switched to cow’s milk and a pre-schooler who drinks nothing but milk and water. Our milk bill is through the roof.

    This prize would be such a help to us.

  19. Jennifer Poncavage says

    we go through so much organic milk. We all love Horizon. This would be such a great thing for us!

  20. Mary Lou says

    My Grandkids drink Horizon milk, but I must be honest, I’ve never purchased it yet!
    I’d love to win Free Horizon milk for my six Grandkiddies!!!

  21. says

    Wow! This sounds great! My husband and I drink lots of milk, and are always looking for healthier foods. I’m definitely going to add them to my shopping list!
    Thanks!

  22. Lori says

    We LOVE Horizon Milk. We go through quite a few gallons each week so it would be great to win this. Thanks for posting it!

  23. says

    I love love love Horizon Organic milk. That’s all we buy now. And, true, it is a wee bit more expensive than non-organic milk, so those coupons would help quite a bit. So please, please, please pick me!

  24. says

    YUM! I’m a cheese-freak and Horizon brand cheese is the best! The first time my son Jake put together three words it was “Mommy, hungry, Cheese!”

    Please enter us. Mmmmmmm.

  25. Sara Larson says

    Thanks for this information. I’m intrigued by Horizon’s decision to put DHA in their milk. I wonder if milk is a good vehicle for DHA, whether it enhances the body’s ability to use DHA.

  26. says

    I don’t have a blog but I’d love to win this! Thanks go to Colleen at My Baby and More for letting me know about this great contest!

  27. Jeenifer says

    Great contest!! Finally a chance to win something healthy. My 2 year old loves the milk with the “cow”.

  28. Jenny says

    I have seen the Horizon products in the store, but I haven’t tried them yet. The milk with omega 3’s is very appealing to me though! Thanks for the contest!

  29. says

    I wish we made more money so I could buy more Horizons milk. It’s INCREDIBLE. The fat-free is so creamy you think you’re drinking 2 %. YUM-O!

  30. Brenda Hopkins says

    This is a great contest. I love Horizon Dairy products. I have 3 gorgeous nephews and my sister likes to feed them organic products. I’d love to win this prize to share with them.

  31. Elizabeth S. says

    As a non-milk drinker, I was astounded at how much my kids and husband consume. I’d love to have a healthier choice in the fridge!

  32. Kim Claycomb says

    We love Horizon Organic products! My child just outgrew her milk protein intolerance and we now use Horizon organic milk!

  33. Beth says

    What a great contest, and you draw the winner on my oldest son’s birthday… we’ll see if that makes me lucky twice on 7/26! :)

  34. Christine says

    Horizon is the only milk my children will drink!! We especially love the single serve packages – great for lunch boxes.
    Thanks for a great product!

  35. says

    We’ve been buying Horizon Organic milk for years! And I’m hoping the grocery stores in our area will begin carrying more of the Horizon product line.

  36. Jackie says

    I’ve never tried organic milk, but your inspirational post has moved me to consider it! And what better way to start than with FREE organic milk? I can’t think of one, so please enter me in the contest!

  37. says

    Oh, I would love this. We’re on such a tight budget that I can’t even THINK about buying organic milk, but I surely wish that I could. This would be such an amazing thing to win!

  38. says

    I’ve never tried organic milk, but now my curiosity is peaked so I’ll be trying it soon, I’m sure. Enter me in the contest, please!

  39. Tiffany McCormick says

    My husband was just diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease and we are making diet changes. This would be a big help! Please include me.

  40. Vilai says

    Wow! My boys love this milk! They’re 3 and 5 and call it ‘THE COW MILK’. Every other milk is just milk to them :) Please include me in your contest – Horizon really is the best. My boys also love the yogurt, this is such a cool contest!!

  41. Christie McGee says

    Would love, love, love to win this one, girls! Kids with allergies and hubby with asthma makes us rethink everything we put into our bodies. We’d love to pick up Horizon on someone else’s tab 😉

  44. Michel says

    We are an organic-only family so it gets to be a pretty penny! But like being a stay at home mom – it’s so worth it! My family deserves only the best! Awesome idea, Horizon!

  45. HandsFree says

    We used to buy Horizon for our oldest because he drank more than a quart a day of milk and we wanted to protect him from all those growth hormones in regular milk. It tasted great and we would love to have it for the whole family to enjoy!

  46. Stephanie says

    Ever since I was diagnosed with hormone driven breast cancer back in 10/04, I have switched my family to Horizon Organic Milk, Eggs and Cheese. I hope we win!

  53. says

    Well,I’m dizzy drunk after scrolling the comments for my name. It seems mine disappeared or at least I didn’t see it. Will I be in trouble for a duplicate posted in innocence? :) My post went up forever ago, promise.

  67. swati says

    I tried the organic milk about two months ago. I had no idea that it would taste so much better. I love the skim milk because it is less fattening. It tastes way better than store brands of skim, which seems watery and tasteless. Please enter me in this contest!
    Thanks!

    Thanks for creating such wonderful products. It is so important for the health of my four children to have a company committed to organic farming. Thank you for the helping both children and adults as well as our earth.

  71. MomofFour says

    The cost of using buying organic milk for children 14, 12, 10, and 7 is so expensive! Please include me in your contest, we would definitely benefit from your products.

  72. Angie says

    Love the products–great for kids and me too! The kids love the pictures on the products!!-Love to see others feel the same way about your organic products!!

  74. Valerie J. Wood says

    My family consumes 5 gallons of milk per week. I have personally switched to Horizon organic milk and I find it delicious. My family is a little hesitant, however, I will continue to buy the organic milk for me. I don’t know how we are going to afford it if everyone drinks Horizon Organic Milk but the expense is woth the health advantages.

  75. says

    Well ive been using Horizon Organic Products for over 5 years. Have tried many,and there is no comparison. I want the best for my family. It would be awsome to win, because i can save some money on the products i love. And keep taking care of my family. With all these wonderful products.

  76. Allison Heck says

    We love Horizon Organic milk! We’ve recently gone as organic as we can afford and we feel so much better (literally). I was so excited to see the Organic Milk with DHA also!
