Thriving Farms are our future.
We were foundedby farmers
Today, farmers face challenges: economic uncertainty, loss of farmland and constant change, to name a few.
While farming is a challenging industry, we are committed to providing support and resources farmers need to not only survive, but thrive. As a farmer-owned co-op that has supported farmers for over 100 years, we know what farmers need to succeed.
"Sure, we get help financing equipment, but it’s the daily things like animal welfare support and technical advice from the Tillamook Farm Services Team that make the biggest difference."
To help farmers facing financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic, we donated $1.6 million to American Farmland Trust in 2020. And, for the next two years we will underwrite their Brighter Future Fund to continue supporting farmers in need across the country.
Working with youth agricultural nonprofits like 4-H and Future Farmers of America, protecting farmland through Oregon Agricultural Trust, and supporting BIPOC farmers and urban gardening programs are ways we connect people with food and advocate for agriculture.
We provide education, tools, resources and leadership development to up-and-coming dairy farmers as part of our Young Cooperators program, which helps develop the next generation of farmers.
