Buying local means dairy products don't have to travel far to get from our local farms to a family's fridge. We're proud that our process goes from cow to dairy, to store shelves, and to the fridge in 48 hours or less—meaning our customers get the freshest, best-tasting, and highest quality products. Our farmers willingly have signed an agreement affidavit pledging that their farming practices do NOT include the use of the Growth Hormone rBST.
Here is what our farm inspector has to say:
“The state requires 6-month inspections; however, Schneider’s Dairy inspects their farms at a maximum of 5 months. As a farm inspector for Schneider’s Dairy, I visit our partner farms every other month. During these visits, I look at the equipment, the health of the animals, the calves, bedding, and the general animal welfare. If I question anything, I will work with the farmer to rectify any situation.
When Schneider’s Dairy became a certified member of the National Dairy FARM Program in 2016, it was very easy for our farmers to fit into this program because our farms function as a store selling a food product. Our first priority is, and always will be, the welfare and care of the animals.”<
