Organic Valley was born of a group of farmers gathered in Southwestern Wisconsin in 1988, focused on keeping their families on the land. Thanks to their success, we are able to share our unique, regional, cooperative model with farming families across the country. Still, every spring, our farmer-members gather for their annual meeting at the cooperative offices in rural La Farge, Wisconsin.
Our large representation of farmer-members from the Appalachians to the Great Plains also shows the continued connection and influence of our home-grown, midwestern roots. Read about a few of the hundreds of Organic Valley farmers in the Midwest!
