Simply by pledging to purchase a portion of our weekly dairy items from any of the participating organic brands, we can all help ensure the survival and success of these farm families.
Joining is simple! Just fill out the pledge below, and then in the coming weeks and months, we will share our pledge numbers with grocers, restaurateurs, cafeterias, and other outlets that purchase and sell dairy products across the region. Large numbers of pledges are the most powerful way to persuade them to become Retail Partners in our effort by increasing the amount of northeast organic family farm milk products they carry. Make your purchasing power count by pledging today!

The Northeast Organic Family Farm Partnership provides a unique opportunity for retailers and institutional buyers. You can become heroes by creating market stability for our region’s farmers, ensuring their lasting success for generations to come.
There are only two commitments for retailers.
That’s it! It’s that simple.
The Northeast Organic Family Farm Partnership launch gained over 287 million media impressions in its first week and was picked up extensively by the local and national press. We are excited to share the story of each retailer who joins our Partnership via additional press releases, local press events, and social media. We take care of the outreach and publicity.
The Partnership logo is trademarked, and a simple licensing agreement protects our Retail Partners against misuse of the label by non-licensed entities. It creates label credibility by asking for an official declaration of the retailer’s commitment. The agreement is a good-faith effort that does not include fees, royalties, or penalties with participation. Upon licensure, you’ll receive a promotional toolkit with everything you need to advertise your involvement to your customers.
There are countless ways in which local organic farms benefit our communities, including building healthy soil, minimizing the use of harmful chemicals, raising healthier livestock and products, carbon sequestration, and circulating farm income 1.9 times into the local economy. Read more here.
