This June Dairy Month we want to celebrate the men and women behind our products. In 1921, we formed the Land O'Lakes Dairy Co-op with the belief that we're better when we work together. Today, we're more than 1,600 dairy farmers strong, and every day our farmers are driven to make things better.
Karen Hawbaker of Warm Spring Dairy
For just about 100 years, Land O’Lakes farmers have been working together to put farm-fresh products on the table for us, and for their families.
We’d like to introduce you to the people behind your food. Meet the farm families. Swing by their kitchen and then head outside to learn more about their operation and the smart farming practices they’re using to help ensure the food you eat is just as delicious as it is sustainable.
Join Amy Brown, as she dives into all the great (and delicious) things happening on dairy farms today and shares what it takes to make the food we eat each and every day.

Thank You. Two little words that mean so much yet are not said nearly enough. And even though it might seem like our farmer-owners are far off in the distance, they’re always just a quick social post away. So if you’ve enjoyed a rich, buttery and delicious meal today, #ThankAFarmer.
