Back in 1988, Organic Valley’s seven founding farmers were concerned about the devastating loss of family farms in America. So these pioneering organic farmers founded a cooperative whose mission was to save family farms through the production of the highest quality organic foods.
Twenty-five years later, the 1,800-plus farmer-owners of CROPP Cooperative / Organic Valley are still guided by that mission.
Their product offerings have grown to include award-winning milk, soy, cheese, butter, spreads, creams, yogurt, eggs, produce, and juice. Organic Valley products can be found in supermarkets, natural foods stores and food cooperatives nationwide.
Organic Valley farmers have consistently led the industry in organic farming and production standards, including one of the nation’s most stringent dairy pasturing policies. Because we know that healthy soil and healthy animals mean healthy food for all families.
In 2013, we celebrate 25 years of cultivating goodness. We have learned along the way that though our challenges are many, our solutions are endless when we work together for what is best for all.
