They started a co-op in 1988 they began producing dairy products under the Organic Valley brand that supported the smaller family farms. Today, they are a leader in organic dairy products. They work with family-owned farms across the nation to produce the finest milk, cheese, yogurt, and more!
Not only does Organic Valley require all of their farms to operate under the USDA’s organic guidelines, but they take it a step further implementing additional measures to ensure they products are pure and like no other. In accordance with organic guidelines, Organic Valley cows are free from hormones or antibiotics, roam free, eat an organic diet, and are raised on organic farms from the day they are born. They also pay extra care to all of the animals on Organic Valley’s farms and ensure they are treated in a humane way at all times.
