Every June, we raise a glass of milk in honor of our dairy farmers during National Dairy Month. This year, we’re encouraging consumers to share their thanks with our member-owners and offering unique ways for them to meet the people behind the butter (and other dairy products)!
We’re helping consumers “meet” our members through videos and sharing facts about how farmers impact our lives outside the dinner table.
This special June Dairy Month
website features topics from sustainability and tending the land to educating and raising the next generation of farmers, giving consumers a behind-the-scenes look at what a day in the life looks like on their farms.
Doing dairy good
By boosting the foodservice industry and our customers, we help make sure our favorite restaurants stay open and continue to thrive even during COVID-19. How do we do this? By ordering takeout, of course! Throughout June Dairy Month and beyond, we’re encouraging everyone to order takeout from their favorite local restaurants and encourage others to do the same.
