For our cows, prevention is the cure. When an organic herd is kept healthy, there is no need for synthetic antibiotics and other remedies that are prohibited by organic standards. We practice round-the-clock animal monitoring, and treat cows with organic-approved vaccines.
When you walk through our farms, chances are you’ll pass by at least one of our “Be Compassionate” signs. It guides our beliefs for how we manage our farms and facilities, as well as our daily interactions with each cow and each other.

Our dairy farms are audited and certified by Validus, an independent firm that is USDA process-verified for their animal care certification. The Validus Animal Care Review certification program includes a comprehensive assessment of each farm’s animal care practices with more than 115 animal welfare metrics, including body condition, behavior, facilities, protocols and management.
Each farm consistently earns Validus’ highest possible audit rating of “excellent.” Read more about the Validus Third Party Certification process.
