blogAs a farmer- and retailer-owned cooperative, we were founded on the concept of community. Working together as a cooperative allows us to build strong communities, create enduring livelihoods and be effective stewards of our natural resources. We’re supporting communities across the United States and around the globe to grow more food with less, foster new ideas and talent, and preserve our communities and the planet for future generations. Who We Are:  In 1921, 320 dairy farmers met in St. Paul, Minnesota, to form the Minnesota Cooperative Creameries Association. Read more

Their idea was simple—join together to effectively market and distribute members’ dairy production across the country.
From there, we quickly set our sights on growth. Just eight years after establishing our butter marketing organization, we expanded into the ag services and feed businesses. Our international journey kicked off 52 years later, as we began relaying the lessons we’d learned to support local agriculture in developing nations around the world. Those efforts have also helped us expand our commercial business beyond the borders of the United States.
Today, our four businesses give us a farm-to-fork view of agriculture. Pair this with our farmer ownership and we’re uniquely qualified to fulfill our purpose of feeding human progress around the world, while always delivering on our responsibility to member-owners through our core values. We’re united in a common cause, committed to excellence and inspired by our place in the world—but there are no shortcuts. We’ve never lost sight of the value of a hard day’s work.
