as most of you know i work for organic valley, but you might not know that we’re celebrating our 25th anniversary and it was an amazing experience to celebrate with some folks from the cooperative at a recent trade show.
it’s incredible to ponder all we’ve accomplished over the past 25 years as an independent farmer-owned cooperative and i hope they’ll let me be a part of the story for the next 25 years.
george and other coop leadership said a few words about the cooperative’s history and future. i get a little goose-pimply when i think about all the exciting things coming up!
a band of current and former employees then hit the stage and. seriously. knocked. it. out. of. the. park. holy cow. i wish i had shot some video. i’m sure there will be some posted eventually. it was an incredible show made all the more incredible by the fact that it was homegrown talent. and if you live in the driftless region you can catch most of them playing sets around town throughout the year.
several hundred folks hung out with us at the anaheim convention center to hear the band and have a few drinks. a fun time was had by all – totally looking forward to what our 50th anniversary party will be like 🙂
