Drink Local. Eat Local. Choose 100% REAL Dairy
The Farm to Table Values You're Looking For
The farm-to-table cycle begins on local dairy farms where fresh milk is picked up daily and delivered to our farmer-owned plants. From there, products are packaged and distributed throughout our communities. Prairie Farms has represented American agriculture since 1938. We are a dairy cooperative - meaning we are owned and operated by 600+ farm families. All selflessly take on the tremendous responsibility of feeding America, being on the job 24/7, 365 days a year.
Our Farmers are Your Neighbors
From our farm families to the team members who operate our manufacturing facilities and deliver our products, we all have one thing in common... A passion for doing our part to help feed American families.

Generational Dairy Farms
An astounding fact is that farmers make up just 1.3% of the employed U.S. population which means most people are three to five generations removed from a farm.
Educational Farm Tours
From preschoolers to college students to parents and grandparents, our dairy farmers address common topics like animal welfare, antibiotics, milk production, and sustainability.
Inspiring Future Dairy Farmers
Our farm families are dedicated to their local communities. They inspire future dairy farmers every day by sharing their story, and how important it is to have local food sources.
We Love Our Cows
Our farm families love their cows and treat them like part of the family. Ask any of our farmers who eats breakfast first on the farm, and they'll all say "their girls" do.
