Who We Are

We are cultivators of fresh, wholesome and nourishing dairy goodness. A simple and honest pursuit achieved by creating products people crave and operating with passion and integrity.

Founded in 1920 by a small group of dairy farmers dedicated to supplying the nation’s capital with farm-fresh milk, our community has grown to more than 900 farmers-strong, with members spanning from New York to South Carolina.

Today, this farmer-led cooperative hangs its hat on providing safe and nutritious products that dairy lovers across the globe have come to know for nearly 100 years.

Our Commitment

Our farmers rise and shine each morning to care for their cows because they are passionate about nourishing the world with fresh and wholesome products.

They are proud of what they do, and they are committed to doing it the right way. We invite you to learn more about our promises to you, our animals, and our environment.

Our Mission

To be a sustainable cooperative that maximizes value to our farmer owners, employees and customers.
