Organic Valley Family of Farms, LaFarge, Wis., the nation's largest independent farmer-owned organic dairy cooperative, has announced the "Transition to Organic Fund." The fund is designed to serve as a financial assistance program for dairy farmers who are making the transition to organic.

Organic Valley's "Transition to Organic Fund" will offset the costs of transitioning for dairy farmers who become members of the Organic Valley cooperative.

"The farmers of Organic Valley are committed to helping dairy farmers make the transition to organic. We know how tough the transition process can be, and we hope our 'Transition to Organic Fund' can help farmers meet the challenge," said Tim Griffin, Organic Valley National Milk Procurement Manager.
