Intro to Organic with Coop Dreams

In Episode 2 of Coop Dreams Season 3, Brad Hauter met with Jim and Kevin at our Texas Mill Outlet in Lubbock to discuss the demand for organic feed, as well as the differences between organics and Non-GMO. In this video, Kevin highlights one key factor: all organic is non-GMO, but not all non-GMO is organic. The difference between conventional agriculture and non-GMO is simply the seed, as all other conventional practices are allowed under Non-GMO Project Verification standards. Organic truly is the gold standard, as evidenced by the chart below: For further information on GMOs, check out our article “GMO? Or Non-GMO? That is the question!” on our...
New Country Organics: A Message from CEO Jim Campbell

New Country Organics: A Message from CEO Jim Campbell

By now, some of you will have heard our news: New Country Organics is expanding to Texas and the southwest. While there is certainly a business case for our expansion (more on that below), as a company we are dedicated to being an active part of creating new – and supporting existing – organic economies. Not only do we work to create more organic acreage, we participate in and help nurture emerging, vital, socially responsible economies based on the development, use, integration and expansion of organics. Now over the years, I’ve been blessed by a rewarding career working for large and successful companies. I’ve had the chance to work on projects all over the world and during some of the most exciting and challenging times of the past few decades – from the collapse of communism to recovery from the Great Recession. Despite all this, there is no place I’d rather be, right now, than bringing our small firm, New Country Organics to America’s southwest, with our recently announced acquisition of the assets of Economy Mills in Lubbock Texas.

 Most senior professionals are lucky enough to find meaning in their work that goes beyond the proverbial pay check, as it takes a huge amount of personal commitment, focus and abundant energy to be a success in those kinds of large corporate roles. And yet, how many of us can truly find meaning in what we do?  How many of us are nervous about giving up the big corporate role and trying something very different? I left financial services in 2014, and...

Hellooo, Texas! NCO Expands into Southwest

The New Country Organics team is proud to announce our expansion into the Southwestern US with the acquisition of a nearly century-old mill in Lubbock, Texas. The new facility will help us expand the accessibility of our freshly-milled certified organic products. The mill was formerly used to process conventional feed products, and is currently being cleaned and serviced to make it ready for organic production. “Restoring the Lubbock mill is ultimately about getting closer to our growing customer base and supporting the organic community throughout the Southwest,” said New Country Organics CEO Jim Campbell. “We’re extremely proud to be part of this community and to serve the needs of our customers with organic products and a brand they’ve come to trust.” “We are dedicated to growing New Country Organics in a socially responsible way,” continued Campbell. “Restoring the Texas mill is both cost-effective and environmentally responsible. It’s been a great pleasure to work with the former mill owners, Claude and Gerry Tatum, and the Lubbock community has been very welcoming.” Beginning in early October, the facility will serve as the company’s Southwest distribution hub, and production of certified organic feed will begin as soon as possible. New Country Organics is already onboarding resellers and new customers in Texas and surrounding states, and is accepting pre-orders. New Country Organics product line includes organic feeds for chickens, ducks, turkeys, goats, swine, sheep, calves, cattle, dairy cattle, horses, rabbits and alpacas, as well as animal health and soil supplements.
