Eggnog, Thanksgiving and Thank You

We have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

We are thankful for the little bit of sun we will get here among the beautiful rolling hills of Southwest Wisconsin. We are thankful for our cooperative that supports over 3,000 families. We are thankful we get to work together to build a healthier, more just and fair food system.

What are we most thankful for?

 

You.

 

The community that supports us. The family that buys our milk every week. The parent who chooses our eggs when there are cheaper options on the shelf. The neighbor who cares about how animals and the earth are treated and decides to live those values with every decision in the shopping cart.

We are thankful for you this Thanksgiving. Without you, there would be fewer family farms doing what they love and making the world a better place for it. Your support is carrying us through a difficult year in the world of dairy farming.

This Thanksgiving, we hope we can return at least a little of the support you give us throughout the year. It’s why we offer coupons to help give your family some savings for the holidays.  It’s why we create the organic food we do. It’s why each year we create Organic Valley Eggnog to share with family gathered around the dinner table. It’s why we make Grassmilk Cheese that comes from family-scale farms focused on grass-based farming to make good food for your holiday dinner.

When you use our butter to baste your turkey, when you shred organic cheese atop that hot dish, and when the hard work of meal prep is done, Organic Valley and our cooperative are with you every step of the way.

Lean back, enjoy the eggnog and have a happy Thanksgiving.
