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!
In August 2021, over 130 organic family dairy farms across eastern NY, VT, NH and ME were suddenly and unexpectedly notified that their milk contracts would not be renewed after the next year. Unless these farms (which in many cases have been there for generations) find alternate outlets, they will face dire financial futures, including closure for many. The only long-term solution for these farmers, and all of the region’s organic family farmers, is to encourage grocers, food co-ops, restaurants and food service venues to commit to increasing their purchases from the brands who get their milk from these farms. THIS IS THE MISSION OF OUR PARTNERSHIP.
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.
