Welcome to Homeland Creamery
Homeland Creamery is family owned and operated by the Bowmans. We are seventh generation farmers and have been raising Holstein cows on the same homestead that have operated the dairy since the 1930’s when our grandfathers’ family started selling “barnyard milk” from a half-dozen dairy cows that were milked by hand. The herd has now grown to over 200 cows and the cows are milked with automatic milking machines twice a day. The cows are our family too!
Our Christian faith, good family, and support in the community have kept us strong. We hope to pass the farm to the next generation and then the next.
We are a sustainable farm
Our Natural Approach to Farming helps You! We always use safe farming practices on our farm. That means the way we farm helps protect our cows and the environment. We use our own spring water for irrigation and when possible we recycle our manure and use it to help fertilize our fields. We practice no till soil conservation which means that we don’t till or plow the soil to eliminate weeds when we prepare our fields for sowing. This no till process helps with soil erosion and water runoff, improves wildlife habitat, and helps reduce greenhouse gases and fuel use.
- Our cows are free to graze in our pastures anytime they want all year long.
- No artificial growth hormones such as BST/rBGH are used on our farm.
- We are your local dairy farmer so our milk doesn’t travel far & as a result is fresher!.
- If a cow ever requires medication, the milk is discarded long after the recommended time to insure no antibiotics enter our milk supply.
- If needed, we use environmentally friendly herbicides to help protect our crops from unwanted pests.
After all, if our cows are treated well and eat good quality hay, grass, and feed, then they are healthier, happier and produce a better quality milk. That makes us happier!
