Dairy Farmers, the largest milk marketing cooperative in the United States, represents nearly 23,000 dairy farm families in 47 states. It markets and supplies milk, cheese, formulated dairy beverages, dairy ingredients, and food components.
Keller's offices, warehouse, and distribution center are in Harleysville PA and its butter processing plant is in Winnsboro TX.
