ROSEBURG — For the first time in its 87-year ­history, Umpqua Dairy is ­processing and distributing organic milk.

The dairy based in ­Roseburg previously had ­purchased ­organic milk from a ­Portland processor and sold it ­under the Umpqua label, said Steve Feldkamp, chief operating ­officer.

Now, Umpqua is ­buying organic milk from a ­Josephine County dairy, he said. The milk is shipped to Umpqua’s main production plant in Roseburg, where it is pasteurized and put in ­containers, Feldkamp said.
