Aurora Organic Dairy is the leading producer of store-brand organic milk and butter for U.S. retailers.

Based in Boulder, Colorado, we operate organic dairy, heifer, and calf farms in Colorado and Texas, as well as an organic dairy processing plant in Platteville, Colorado.

Organic agriculture, animal care and sustainable production are the cornerstones of our business. Our processing facility and each of our farms are certified organic by USDA National Organic Program accredited certifiers and certified by Validus, a leading independent animal welfare auditor.

At Aurora Organic Dairy, we oversee the quality standards for milk production from cow-to-carton. We closely monitor the practices and protocols from our farms to our processing facility, focusing on quality every step of the way.

As organic dairy farmers, we fundamentally understand that high-quality milk comes from healthy cows, and we place a high priority on science-based disease prevention and on keeping our cows healthy and stress-free. We work hard to ensure that each cow on our farms is well-nourished and properly treated. Our cows eat a balanced, nutrient-dense diet of certified organic pasture, forages, grains and vitamins and minerals. Our cows are never given antibiotics, synthetic growth hormones or other unapproved substances. We find that by focusing on prevention, staff training and keeping our cows healthy and well fed, our cows are less susceptible to illness and produce better quality organic dairy products.

To reduce our negative impact on the environment, in 2008 we began tracking and measuring all of our farms and our milk plant for key environmental impact areas, including greenhouse gas emissions, energy use, water use and solid waste/recycling. We are pleased that our comprehensive CSR reporting and transparency is being recognized by the global CSR community. Our 2015 report recently was honored by Ragan Communications as “Best One-Time or Annual Report” in their 2015 PR Daily Corporate Social Responsibility Awards. Our 2015 report was also recognized in Corporate Register’s 2016 Corporate Responsibility Reporting Awards as a finalist in the categories of: Relevance & Materiality, Creativity in Communication, and Openness & Honesty. Additionally, our first Corporate Citizenship Report, published in 2013, was recognized in the Corporate Register’s 2015 Corporate Responsibility Reporting Awards as “Best First Time Report.” To download a copy of our first report, please click here.
