Organic farmers engaging with schools through the Teach-In and with their communities in their daily lives,” said George Siemon, CEIEIO of Organic Valley and one of its founding farmers. “Generation Organic gives these young organic farmers an opportunity to share with other youth their vision for a better world. These young people are the future of sustainable agriculture—their hard work and enthusiasm inspire us all.”
Key visits for the Generation Organic 2013 Teach-In include elementary schools across the country from Maine to Wisconsin to California, such as Longfellow School in Portland, Maine; Sparta Lakeview Montessori, in Sparta, Wis., and Liberty Elementary in Petaluma, Calif., to name a few.

Organic Valley Family of Farms: Independent and Farmer Owned
Organic Valley is America’s largest cooperative of organic farmers and one of the nation’s leading organic brands. Organized in 1988, it represents 1,834 farmers in 35 states and achieved $860 million in 2012 sales. Focused on its founding mission of saving family farms through organic farming, Organic Valley produces a variety of organic foods, including organic milk, soy, cheese, butter, spreads, creams, eggs, and produce, which are sold in supermarkets, natural foods stores and food cooperatives nationwide. With its regional model, milk is produced, bottled and distributed right in the region where it is farmed to ensure fewer miles from farm to table and to support our local economies.
