About the Northeast Organic Family Farm Partnership

In August 2021, 135 organic family dairy farms across eastern New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine were suddenly and unexpectedly notified that their contracts with Horizon Organic and Maple Hill Creamery would not be renewed after the following year. In response to this crisis, the Northeast Organic Family Farm Partnership was formed to increase the regional demand for organic milk produced in the Northeast by family farms. Increased demand for regionally supplied organic milk is necessary to save the at-risk farms, build market stability for the dairy industry, and create resiliency in the northeast regional food system as our family farms disappear at increased frequency. 

The only long-term solution for these farmers and all of the region’s organic family farmers is to encourage consumers, grocers, food co-ops, restaurants, and food service venues to increase their purchases from the brands that purchase milk from the region.

The Partnership’s program has three pillars:

  • Brands - We engage with 35 brands committed to sourcing milk from regional organic family farms. These are our “Brand Partners.”
  • Retailers - We invite retailers and institutional food service outlets to join by committing to promoting products from Brand Partners by signing a license agreement to use our trademarked Partnership seal in their in-store and digital outreach. These are our “Retail Partners.”
  • Consumers - We circulate a pledge asking consumers to buy one-fourth of their weekly dairy purchases from the Brand Partners and patronize the Retail Partners.  

The partnership is fiscally managed by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA), a 501(c)3 organization located in Maine. 



The Northeast Organic Family Farm Partnership is an educational project affiliated with the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, a 501(c)3 Charitable Non-Profit Organization. Our efforts to educate and build a region-wide commitment to helping to keep the northeast’s organic family farmers financially supported and viable depends completely on the generosity of our donors.
