Strafford Organic Creamery
From their website:
“The Strafford Organic Creamery is a one-farm, one-family dairy in central Vermont. We milk 50 Guernseys and market their amazing milk in glass bottles, and in super-premium ice cream. Certified organic in 1997 and bottling on our own since 2001, we are committed to sustainable agriculture and dairy without compromises.”
Sterling College is lucky to be able to buy rich, creamy whole and 2% milk from Strafford Organic Creamery, 94 miles South of Craftsbury. Earl Ransom and Amy Huyffer, who own the dairy, are committed to responsible stewardship of their animals and land. They use no herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers.
The community of Sterling College consumes about 60 to 90 gallons of milk a week! All of it comes from Strafford.
In local stores, Strafford milk is a hot commodity. Shelves rapidly sell out of the, high quality milk, from skim to chocolate and old-fashioned creamline (unhomogenized). Their organic ice cream is made with simple, pure ingredients and churned carefully into a delicious desert.
Thanks to Strafford for keeping our glasses filled with local milk! (And to everyone who helps put out a new container when we run out!)
