More and more people crave transparency when it comes to their food. People want to know where their food comes from and its impact on animal well-being and the environment. We're proud to partner with family farmers that are inspired to produce quality milk out of their love for animals and their passion for sustainability.
We aim to bring awareness to the fact that family farms are disappearing, while more and more industrial farms are continually built. This way of industrialized farming has changed the way food is raised and made, and we want to go back to the way things used to be when family farmers led the industry and quality of food was most important.
A family farm is a tradition, a livelihood, and a way of life that is passed down for generations. In the future, we hope to see that more generations of family farms, like the ones we feature here, are given the opportunity to succeed, and it all starts with your support.
