How Was "Land 'O Lakes" Named?
Land O'Lakes was founded in 1921 in Saint Paul, Minnesota, by representatives from 320 co-op creameries as the Minnesota Cooperative Creameries Association. The organization aimed to improve marketing and quality, and thus raise the price of butter. In 1924, their new sweet cream butter was given the name "Land O'Lakes" after a public contest, and in 1926, the organization took this name.
