After two years of delivering milk for other farms, Harvey P. Hood decided that people deserved better, fresher, more reliable, premium-quality milk. So in 1846, he started his own business – and Hood® has been raising the bar in dairy ever since.

Our founder Harvey Hood wouldn’t work with just any farmer, and neither will we. Hood’s uncompromised commitment to quality ensures that your milk comes from farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones*, demonstrate high standards of quality, and adopt humane animal care as a core value. 


* No significant difference has been shown between rBST-treated (artificial growth hormone) and non-rBST-treated cows.

Fresh Thinking

At Hood, it’s all about fresh. From the milk used in our products to our thinking. Our history of innovation inspires everything we do, from the groundbreaking LightBlock Bottle®, to our big, bold selection of cottage cheese flavors.  Our commitment to quality is why moms continue to choose Hood.
