The Natural by Nature brand truly exemplifies what consumers believe they are investing in when they purchase organic dairy products. It is a family-owned business that procures 100% of its milk from family-owned farmers.
Natural Dairy Products Corporation (NDP) was started in 1994 by Ned MacArthur and his father Norman. Ned had quit milking cows a year earlier because of low milk prices and the frustration that there was no system by which farmers could sell milk organically. Ned and Norman teamed up with four organic dairy farmers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and created a sustainable process in which grass-fed organic milk could be produced, transported, processed, and packaged, independent of the huge, volume-based milk industry, under the brand name Natural By Nature. Natural Dairy Products now supports over 25 family-owned and operated farms, four of which are the original pioneering farms.
To promote and support organic farming and the sustainable use of our natural resources. To produce foods that benefit consumers and farmers alike. To use the principles of grass-based dairy production as a means to improve the quality of our products, maximize the health of our cows, and protect our watersheds. To make a living for our families, based on these strongly held principles.
