Hall of Legends 2013: George Siemon

George Siemon, C-E-I-E-I-O of CROPP, the farmers' co-op behind the Organic Valley brand, is honored here as he is inducted into the New Hope Hall of Legends Class of 2013. Since founding the co-op in 1988 Siemon has been instrumental in broadening the organic dairy industry while simultaneously developing a sustainable, farmer-friendly production model. A former farmer himself, Siemon preaches the value of the free things in life, and says that getting people closer to nature—whether it's by gardening, camping or what have you—will be key to keeping the dream of organic agriculture alive.
