Our Story

The Natural by Nature brand truly exemplifies what consumers believe they are investing in when they purchase organic dairy products. It is a family-owned business that procures 100% of its milk from family-owned farmers. Natural Dairy Products Corporation (NDP) was started in 1994 by Ned MacArthur and his father Norman who teamed up with four organic dairy farmers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and created a sustainable process in which grass-fed organic milk could be produced, transported, processed, and packaged - independent of the huge, volume-based milk industry, under the brand name Natural By Nature. Natural Dairy Products now supports over 35 family-owned and operated farms, three of which are the original pioneering farms.

 

Our Mission is Both Simple and Ambitious:

To promote and support organic farming and the sustainable use of our natural resources; to produce foods that benefit consumers and farmers alike; to use the principles of grass-based dairy production as a means to improve the quality of our products; to maximize the health of our cows, and protect our watersheds; and to make a living for our families, based on these strongly held principles.
