Our micro dairy produces and processes products
to sell directly to customers in our area.
We proudly do things differently than standard massive creameries.
We believe change is needed to the current dairy system.
Take a look at the differences below:
Our small dairy farm was once one of those farms selling to a co-op.
As years went on, we lost more and more money and were headed towards closing just like most of our peers. Bob grew up in a dairy farming family and had always dreamed of processing his herds milk to sell right to the families in town. In 1997, he and his wife Jeanette began planning to see if it was possible.
In 2004, after 8 years of hard work and preparation, the first batch of
Kappers’ Big Red Barn milk was pumped from the barn to the processing
plant to be bottled in glass bottles. We haven’t looked back since.
