Nestled in the heart of mid-Michigan is our small organic dairy farm and creamery that makes honest-to-goodness, old-fashioned cultured yogurt and whole milk products. All our products are made from scratch in our on-farm creamery using the rich, creamy milk from our 100% grass-fed Jersey cows. We make each product by-hand, with integrity, and with high-quality ingredients to bring you the nutrient-dense foods you’re looking for.
We have a small herd of Jersey cows, and all the girls (cows) have names. You’ll find our girls grazing in the pastures from spring through fall and eating harvested hay throughout the winter. Our girls are grass-fed only and non-confined. They’re happy and content and spend their days doing what cows should be doing – enjoying the outdoors and giving creamy, healthy milk.
Our milk contains high butterfat! “Butterfat is rich in short- and medium-chain fatty acids which protect against disease and stimulate the immune system. It contains glycospingolipids which prevent intestinal distress and conjugated linoleic acid which has strong anticancer properties.” (source: A Campaign for Real Milk brochure from The Weston A. Price Foundation)
We keep a closed herd, which means we do not bring in cows from other sources. This protects our girls from disease and viruses being brought onto the farm from other animals. We raise our cows right from birth.
Our Mission It is our belief that we are stewards of the land (farm) and we are to do no harm to it. We need to leave the land in better shape than we found it. We at Thomas Organic Creamery endeavor to bring forth the very best food we know how and to provide for you food made with with integrity.
