As many of you know in visiting our website or social media platforms, we are a family farm, passionate about what we do. The farm was founded in 1955 and until 2013 we were unable to link what we did on our farm to a product on the shelf. That changed in 2013, we decided that we wanted to put our name on some products so that we could link our story and what we do, to a product consumers could get behind.

Modern dairy farms focus on cow comfort and providing our cows with low-stress environments. Barn design and use are aiding in creating a comfortable environment for our cows. Modern dairy barns allow the cow free access to feed and water. The barns are designed to keep the air flowing, so it’s fresh. We have beds that are comfortable and clean. With our barns, we can also protect our cows from the adverse weather, and any other threat to them.
We love Big Salad! Serve this salad with the lettuce and the toppings separate so you build your salad yourself. The more toppings the better in our opinion! This veggie packed salad is an awesome side to lighten up an indulgent meal, or great on its own. Pair it with your favourite dressing or go with our Yogurt Jalapeno Ranch.
The Sunday breakfast recipe you didn’t know you needed.
“Stratas are a great way to clean out your fridge and use up leftovers. Use whatever cooked meats you have on hand, vegetables that are starting to go, and that stale loaf of bread in your pantry. Soaked in an egg, milk, and cheese mixture and baked until light and fluffy, it’s a satisfying breakfast.”
It seems so often a bundle of bananas goes brown on us. This browned butter banana bread is the perfect solution! With warm hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, and the addition of walnuts and coconut, this loaf is best enjoyed warm as an after school snack with a generous smear of butter or peanut butter. Have a picky eater? Sub the walnuts for chocolate chips!
