Local Producer Profile: Organic Valley
October is Co-op Month! In celebration, we are featuring a local farmer-owned cooperative – Organic Valley! Organic Valley (CROPP Cooperative) has humble roots inVernon County that date way back to 1988 and extend through today. This year they celebrate their 30th Anniversary producing and selling high quality organic dairy products, eggs, meat and produce. They employ over 900 people, a majority of which work at their offices and production facilities in La Farge, Cashton and Chaseburg, as well as have over 2,000 farmer-owners across the United States.
VFC is a champion for Organic Valley products. We love to stock our favorite organic milk, meat and dairy products from OV, but it goes further than that. Organic Valley and VFC are partners in strengthening the cooperative model in our communities. We’ve served together on co-op projects, and through the years a variety of OV Staff Members served vital roles on the VFC Board of Directors.
All Seasons Dairy is just one of over 400 Organic Valley farmer-owners located in Wisconsin (of which 110 reside in Vernon County).
