The New England Dairy Way

Vision: To be a catalyst for a vibrant New England dairy community.

Mission: We champion New England dairy farm families and the nutritious foods they produce.

For more than 100 years, we have served our communities in five New England states and proudly support the importance of local dairy foods, dairy farmers, and dairy farming in New England. 

We are a non-profit nutrition education and promotion organization founded, funded, and led by dairy farmers who are committed to producing healthy products and caring for their cows, the land, and their communities.

Staffed with nutrition and communications professionals grounded in science, we are dedicated to dairy and these core values that drive our work every day:

Keep it Real:

  • We are authentic and transparent.
  • We hold ourselves accountable.
  • We believe in dairy and dairy farmers and are proud to work on their behalf.


  • We work strategically with partners and believe we’re stronger together.
  • We provide a safe environment for everyone to be their authentic selves.
  • We normalize feedback and pursue opportunities for growth.
  • We learn from those who have different beliefs and experiences. 


  • We base our work on research and insights.
  • We are curious and boldly seek new opportunities.
  • We are agile so that we can pivot with a purpose.
  • We are focused on the future and making a positive impact.

We have a long legacy as a trusted partner with deep roots in our New England community.

The New England Dairy Team

Nutrition and communications professionals passionate about real dairy.

Meet the Team

We are overseen by a board of dairy farmers from New England and Eastern New York.

The five New England states we work in are:

  • Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.

Why is Maine not one of the New England states that we work in?

Why are Eastern New York dairy farmers involved in New England Dairy?

  • New Englanders love dairy so much that our neighbors in Eastern New York share milk from their farms with us. Some milk produced on New York dairy farms travels into the New England region to feed and nourish our population. 

Thank you for your support. We are proud to be your go-to for all things dairy—farming, food, nutrition, and wellness.
