A unique feature of our cooperative is a stable pay price. That means our farmer-members aren’t at the mercy of wildly fluctuating dairy prices, but can count on a fair price for their milk when the work is done. Farmers new to the coop get extensive training in organic practices, and ongoing assistance in managing their farms organically and profitably.
Many of our farmer members are part of the Amish, Mennonite and other Plain-dress communities. These families’ farming roots in America go back two centuries, and their entire way of life is built around farms passed down through generations. Like all Organic Valley farmers, they’re committed to organic, sustainable methods of raising food: good for people, animals, and the earth we live on.
