Meet Our
Farmer-Owners

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.

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.
