Our vision is regional—regional organic dairy.
Since 2005, when a small group of organic Texas dairy farmers joined our cooperative, Organic Valley has been proud to provide organic milk from the pastures of the Lone Star State. We are happy to announce we've expanded our regional vision and welcomed a New Mexico farmer (located about 20 miles from Texas) to our family of farms. Now you can enjoy delicious organic milk knowing you're helping to keep family farmers on the land, boosting the local economy and protecting Texas and New Mexico land for future generations!
Since some of the milk for Organic Valley Texas Pastures is now from our New Mexico farmer-owner, we're in the process of changing to a new regional name—Southwest Pastures!
"There’s nothing to replace the joy of watching a little calf nursing and waggling its tail and the sun’s coming up and the birds are singing…There’s nothing that can replace even one spring day once you have that experience in your soul.”
"My conventional dairy required feed mixing wagons and tractors and lots of employees and fuel. It was a constant headache. I thought, there’s got to be a better way, or I don’t want to do it. Now, with 70 Jersey and Jersey crosses, the organic dairy is so simple. I have more time to spend with my kids.”
“I think people who farm organically do it because they really want to farm. It wouldn’t seem like the thing to do to make these big changes at age 59, but I intend to rebuild the farm, leave it a better place. I know that’s possible when I watch the cows graze. I like to turn them out after milking and walk amongst them while they graze.”
