Always good

Always Hood

Farmers Pledge


No Artificial Growth Hormones.

We're proud to say that all Hood Milk manufactured in New England and Hood Simply Smart® Milk, which is manufactured in New York, are from farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones (rBST).

And even though the FDA concluded that rBST is safe and that there is no difference between the milk obtained from cows treated with rBST and those that are untreated, we are happy to offer this option in response to your feedback and requests.

As a leader in dairy innovation for more than 160 years, it's important to us to evolve with technology and our customers’ needs. And to us, offering products backed by a pledge to not use artificial growth hormones is just one more reason to always feel good about choosing Hood.

*To satisfy our consumers, our farmers pledge not to use artificial growth hormones.
