About Us

The Darigold you see today was started in 1918 by a small group of ambitious Washington dairy farmers. A lot has changed since then, but just like in the beginning, we’re still a Northwest farmer-owned and led cooperative.

We process farm fresh milk into products with unsurpassed quality, freshness and flavor. Learn more about what we’ve been up to for the last 100 years.
