our People

It all begins with our member-owners. They’re responsible for setting the cooperative’s direction, selecting our board of directors and producing the high-quality milk used to make Foremost Farms’ dairy products. It takes about 1,000 employees working in facilities throughout the Upper Midwest to make all those dairy products and ingredients. Our workforce is stable, experienced and proud of our reputation as a world-class dairy supplier.


Foremost Farms’ member-owners guide and control the cooperative.

Farmer run

Foremost Farms is guided and controlled by a 15-member board of directors – all member-owners and active dairy producers – who set the policies for management. Progressive and far-seeing, our directors are dedicated to keeping the cooperative strong, flexible and competitive.

Michael Doyle is Foremost Farms’ forward-thinking president.
