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.
