Organic Valley

The Organic Valley Story

Our story starts back in January of 1988 a time when family farms were on the brink of extinction.  We were a handful of farmers in Southwestern Wisconsin’s coulee region and we shared a love of the land.  We also shared the belief that a new sustainable approach to agriculture could help family farms and rural communities survive.  With a small poster inviting area farmers to join our current CEIEIO, George Siemon, for an informational meeting regarding the formation of the Coulee Region Organic Produce Pool (CROPP) at the county courthouse, we created enough momentum to carry us to this day.

Folks back then, just like you today, were concerned with food quality and environmental issues.  They were looking for more natural and nutritious food.  Food grown without synthetic and potentially harmful pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers.  We began by growing organic vegetables and soon added organic dairy products.  When we found the demand we anticipated was real we created the Organic Valley brand name and expanded our product line.

The Organic Valley Cooperative is a unique organization owned and operated by over 1800 family farmers.  Since our inception in 1988 Organic Valley has been instrumental in helping to set up and support the organic movement from the beginning.  Our cooperative played a major role in helping to establish the strict standards of the USDA Organic certification and continues to hold our farmer members to these standards as it relates to their entire farming operations from the overall humane treatment of their livestock, their relationship to their land, and the quality of their finished product to exceed the expectations of their consumers.  Organic Valley products are second to none and many of our goods have been recognized and awarded prestigious awards for the quality of the wholesome foods raised in harmony the way Mother Nature intended.
