Vendor Profile: Organic Valley

From Humble Beginnings

In 1988 a group of Midwest family farmers from Coulee came together to save American family farms. These farmers were fed up with being told to “get big, or get out!” so they came together to form the Coulee Region Organic Produce Pool or the CROPP Cooperative. They started by selling organic vegetables and after 29 years in the industry have added organic dairy, soy and egg products.

Today they are 1,800 family farms strong and continue to add organic egg, meat, soy, produce, and livestock feed producers.  They like to keep things honest and simple and that’s why all their products are all certified organic and non-GMO. Their dairy products contain no added hormones, antibiotics or toxic pesticides.

Commitment to Farming Organic and Sustainability

Organic Valley’s commitment goes beyond making sure all their products are organic, they helped write the standards for USDA organic certification. By farming organically they are also socially, economically and environmentally sustainable. Everything they do helps benefit the environment, the family farmers and you!

They Care About Animals Too!

Organic Valley recognizes that animals living in happy and healthy environments produce better tasting food. That’s why all their cows are pasture-raised and free to roam which means higher quality dairy products for you and your family.

Products to Try

Organic Valley products like Organic Milk, Mighty Bars and Stringles are all fantastic!
