Dairy Farming

At Dairy Farmers of America, we're proud to share the simple pleasures of real dairy straight from our family dairy farms. And because our Cooperative is owned by our farmers, they're personally invested in every product, decision and step we take as an organization. That direct, personal connection to the farm makes each bowl of ice cream even sweeter — and that's why This Mark Matters.

During times of crisis, the need for reliable, nutritious food is even greater. That’s why DFA is committed to helping where we can through our DFA Cares Foundation, which was created by our family farmer-owners to help meet this increased need. From supporting local milk farms to ensuring dairy products reach those in need, we strive to make a meaningful difference in communities facing hardship.

From Our Family Farms

DFA is made up of nearly 10,000 diverse family farmers from across the country. And while their family traditions vary from one farm to the next, some things are always the same — like their commitment to the land, their animals and the families they feed. We support each of these milk farms by finding a home for their milk, operating plants to process their milk, investing in new opportunities and more, all designed to bring them value.
