Since our founding by farmers more than 30 years ago, we have been dedicated to organic food and farming and the interconnectedness of all life.We believe, as much as you believe, that when our cows get time out on grass in the fresh air because that’s what they’re meant to do. Our fields are grown without pesticides so that pollinators and beneficial insects are encouraged to live and thrive.
Your dedication and support helps us continue to be a refuge for life and a home for innovation on-farm and on-shelf. We brought Ultra™ ultra-filtered milk, our newest product, out into the world so milk-lovers looking for more protein and less sugar can feel even better about what they spend their milk money on. We brought renewable electricity to over 10,000 people in our community through partnerships and your support. And as an added benefit, pollinator habitats around the solar panels will attract even more life to those communities.
