We’ve kept 440 million pounds of chemicals off the land and our owned facilities are powered by 100% renewable electricity! But we know we can always do more. Organic Valley’s insetting projects will cover 34 states on farms that produce dairy, eggs, meat, grain, and produce.

“As America’s low-carbon dairy, we are excited to bring this new program to Organic Valley farmer-members, not only to accelerate additional carbon drawdown but also to better the communities our farmers, employees, and consumers call home,” said Nicole Rakobitsch, director of Organic Valley’s Sustainability Team. “Many of these practices have added co-benefits such as providing habitat for wildlife and pollinators, and providing clean air and water.”

Uniting to Reach Carbon Neutrality

Our farmers are down to earth, literally. It’s not unusual to see them running their hands through the soil, sitting on the ground with their cows as they await the next project, or kneeling in a pasture checking what forages are popping up.

By participating in the CROPP Carbon Insetting Program, our farmer-members can ensure that their carbon credits stay with their farm and benefit the co-op, helping to reach our collective carbon neutral goal.

Started by seven farmers more than 30 years ago, Organic Valley has grown to more than 1,700 caretakers of land and animals. We recognize that food and farming systems have a key role to play in mitigating climate change. Organic Valley farmers want to ensure that what we do and how we do it is impacting the world in a positive way. We will continue to do what’s best for the planet, animals, and people by promoting biodiversity, reducing fossil fuels, and making sure our soil is healthy.
