The Naturally Dairy campaign originated in Lewis County, NY to show the North Country's strengths in agriculture, highlight our hard working farms, remind consumers of the benefits of dairy in a well balanced diet and educate the community on the impact of dairy to our overall economy.
How can you get involved to support our local agriculture industry? Think local. Shop local. Buy local!
The following dairy plants/stores utilize Northern NY milk. Remember to "think local" during your next shopping trip!
If you are unsure where your milk is coming from, look for the plant code. Milk with the plant code beginning with “36” means that the milk is processed in New York and sourced from New York farms. You can find the plant code near the top of the container, on the lid, or on the label. Purchase milk with the number 36!
New York State Grown & Certified is the first statewide, multi-faceted food certification program designed to strengthen consumer confidence in New York products, address food product labeling, and assist New York farmers so they can take advantage of the growing market demand for foods locally grown and produced to a higher standard.
