Our vision is simple: Keep it organic and close to home. Whenever possible, we want our consumer-partners getting products from farms and plants nearby. That’s why we call your local milk “New York Fresh.” Regional production and distribution means our customers get the delicious, high-quality, fresh product they enjoy, while supporting farmers close to home. Regional, organic production builds the local economy and allows rural New York communities to protect the environment in which their children are raised.
Land prices and other pressures have made it hard for many farmers to stay in business in New York and throughout the Northeast. Our cooperative mission is to keep organic family farmers on the farm, taking care of the land and resources in your region.
You can enjoy delicious organic New York Fresh Milk and other Organic Valley foods while supporting farmers, boosting local economies, and protecting land and resources near you. Follow the links below to meet a few of the 119 Organic Valley member families farming in New York. Then raise a glass of organic milk and toast the region's farming heritage, for today and for generations to come!
The secret ingredients in Maureen and Paul Knapp's special family farm recipe are a generous cup of gratitude and a hearty handful of positive thinking.
“Everything we do here begins with asking the question: What can we do to make this last for generations? It’s the same question George and the guys at Organic Valley asked of themselves when they started our farmer-owned co-op.”
