About Us

Fry Dairy was started in 1957 by Phillip & Dora Fry and is currently operated by sons David and Dwight Fry and their families. Wives Teresa and Lori operate the creamery, allowing David and Dwight to devote their time and attention to the farm.

David and Teresa have 5 sons and 1 daughter, ranging in age from 12 to 35. They’ve all worked on the farm at some point, whether it’s feeding calves, working in the fields, or milking the cows. They also have 10 grandchildren — so far.  The grandkids are in training!!

Dwight and Lori have 2 sons and 2 daughters, ranging in age from 15 to 21. The two youngest help with all aspects of the farm, milking cows, feeding calves, or helping with planting and harvest of crops.  The older two are away at college.

Ozark Mountain Creamery products are fresh, wholesome, and naturally produced. How do we know this? Because our milk comes from our own farm right here in Mountain Grove, Missouri. We grow about 90% of what is fed to our cows, which is GMO-free and pesticide free. The fields are fertilized from our lagoon. Our cows have NEVER been given artificial
hormones (rbst).

We have long known our milk is a quality product. So we decided to take what we do best, produce milk, make it better with glass bottles, and bring it to the consumer, thus preserving the family farm for our children and grandchildren.

One aspect of our creamery that sets us apart is we use a low-temperature vat pasteurization process. It takes 30
minutes to pasteurize our milk. Using the slower, lower-temperature method, preserves the natural flavor of the milk
while ensuring that any possible harmful bacteria is eliminated. Based on customer feedback, many people that are lactose intolerant can drink our milk.  We understand this is possible because the lower-temperature pasteurization does not kill the enzymes that aid digestion.

After milking the cows, the milk is processed and bottled within 48 hours, giving you the consumer perhaps the freshest milk you’ve ever tasted.
