We did let one thing ruffle our feathers in 2018 though: animal care on the farm.

You, the friends of Organic Valley, answered our call when we told you that the government was backtracking on their word to improve animal care standards on organic farms. More than 70,000 of you made your voices heard on the issue. We couldn’t be prouder of your passion.

You want better animal care standards on organic farms, so we will keep on fighting like crazy. We are raising our own Organic Valley standards even higher than they were before, above and beyond anything required by any label. We are supporting a lawsuit against the actions of the USDA. You deserve higher standards, and we will continue to push for better animal care standards on organic farms.

We are listening to you.

We remove ingredients from our products when you ask. We add standards when you support them. We even help you talk to farmers because, well, we think everyone should speak with a farmer now and again.

And, most of all, we help each other. Because of your support, because you chose Organic Valley and made a values-based purchase in 2018, we were able to send food and aid through Grassroots Aid Partnership to communities in crisis. From hurricane relief in North Carolina and Florida to fire relief efforts right now in California, we are humbled to be able to offer healthy, organic food to the communities who need it most.

"With your help, we’ve done a lot of good in 2018. And with your help, we will bring the good to even more communities in 2019. Thank you for supporting this crazy cooperative of ours, and have a happy new year"
