About the Northeast Organic Family Farm Partnership

After 135 termination notices went out to farms across Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York in the fall of 2021 from the processor Horizon Organic, the Northeast Organic Family Farm Partnership was formed. The partnership was created to encourage all stakeholders in the food system – consumers, retailers, and vendors –to support and safeguard our region’s organic family farmers. Since it’s formation six months ago: Organic Valley has offered contracts to 90 displaced farms and Stonyfield Organic has picked up another 5 displaced farms. Over 2,700 concerned consumers have signed the pledge to buy ¼ of their weekly dairy purchase from partner brand products. 34 Co-ops and independent grocery stores have become Retail Partners committed to carrying Partner Brand products and increasing their sales year over year.

 Sign the pledgeYou can feel good that you are taking a tangible step to ensure the long-term viability of our region’s farms.
