We are excited to be the first dairy farm in the province of Saskatchewan to have a milk plant from which we sell our very own cow’s milk! Another first for our province is a milk dispenser, which allows folks to get milk on tap by filling their own bottles and jars.
About Our Milk:
Our thirty Holstein cows are pastured from May till October, with additional free-choice hay. They get a grain supplement at milking time. In the colder months, the cows are housed in a large airy barn with access to an outside straw bedding pack and exercise yard. Their winter feed consists of an alfalfa-grass hay mix, as well as the grain supplement.
The health benefits of pastured cow’s milk and pastured meat (our Holstein beef is for sale in our store) are that they are rich in omega-3s (including the long-chain omega-3s), has high levels of CLA, B vitamins, beta-carotene, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
Hours & More Info:
The creamery is open during the same hours as Farmyard Market (check the 'more info' tab at the top of the page).
If you have your container and spare change handy, you can drive on across the yard from our store to the creamery, where you can help yourself to self-serve milk on tap.
Bring your own clean jars, bottles, pails, or containers. We don't recommend re-using the store bought 4 litre jugs because they are difficult to clean properly in the handle area. The best is to bring easy-to-clean containers.
Reusable glass bottles with our logo are available in the store in sizes of 1 pint, 1 litre, and 2 litres.
Bring your spare change, or we can make some for you at Farmyard Market. The milk dispenser accepts any quantity of Canadian coin (not pennies).
Cream, cheese curds, cottage cheese, ricotta, skim milk, chocolate milk, small jars of yogurt, and ice cream are now available!
