From farm to table, dairy is a pivotal solution for sustainable nutrition. American Dairy Association North East takes pride in dairy farmers commitment in protecting the land, caring for their animals and producing high-quality milk.

Did you know dairy provides nearly 20% of the protein in American diets and more than 50% of our calcium and vitamin D, yet is only responsible for 2% of the U.S. carbon footprint?

Producing one gallon of milk has a 19% smaller carbon footprint, uses 30% less water and 21% less land than a gallon of milk did 10 years ago.
