Your Northeast Neighborhood Organic Food Cooperative

616 Local Organic Farms

Where are you if you want to be the first person in the U.S. to see the sunrise? Cadillac Mountain in Maine’s Acadia National Park. Unfortunately, no cows are allowed there, but they don't mind. The Organic Valley farms on mainland Maine give them all the green pasture and sunshine they could want.

Folks in the Big Apple certainly appreciate our cows’ diligence when Organic Valley products land on their tables. The milk, cheese, butter and more are delicious and full of the nutritious components that mineral-rich, Northeastern pastures deliver.

Organic Valley farmers are grazing their animals all over the Northeast. From the shores of Lake Champlain to the Finger Lakes, and from Maine’s Aroostook County to Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay, our cooperative of organic farms brings more good to the region in so many ways.

 

Meet Your Local Organic Valley Farmers

Firefighting and Legislation

From summer camps to state legislators, Organic Valley farmers are everywhere you are. Rodney Graham in Williamstown, Vermont, is a state representative to the Vermont House. He’s a long-time volunteer firefighter and now fire chief! He’s also a leader in agriculture—Rodney’s an Organic Valley Grassmilk farmer, which means his cows are 100% grass-fed.

Hart to Hart Summer Camp

Every summer, Organic Valley farmers Doug and Linda Hartkopf in Albion, Maine, open Hart to Hart Farm for week-long summer camps that are so popular that there’s usually a waiting list! Kids get hands-on experience taking care of animals and learning how to cook from scratch with fresh ingredients. The kids all say it’s a magical experience.

A University or a Farm? Both.

The University of New Hampshire dairy farm in Lee is an Organic Valley farmer-owner! Big shout out to the students who run it and learn on their feet. The work and research they do benefit all organic dairies.

Organic Valley—Bringing the Good to the Northeast

Saving the Future of Food

Instead of complaining about where our future farmers will come from, we decided to give young farmers a helping hand. The Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy and Livestock Farmers educates and mentors beginning grass-based and organic dairy and livestock farmers in the Midwest and Northeast.
