The Dairylea Cooperative was founded in 1907 as The Dairymen's League when group of dairy farmers in Orange County, New York, united to increase their bargaining power. By the 1920s, the Cooperative's membership had increased to more than 100,000 farms. While based initially in Pearl River, New York, the organization is currently based in East Syracuse, New York. They renamed themselves after their most famous product, Dairylea Milk.
