Adam, Our bottles can be used and reused as many times as possible unless they become really scratched, or get cracked or broken. On average, I'd say that a normal bottle can save around 40 plastic containers from the landfill in it's lifetime. Doug

Justin, Our milk comes from prodominately holstein cows, however there are a few jerseys on one of the farms.

Great milk!! We were wondering if the cows are grass fed at all and if so, how often. Is the feed organic? Thanks, Jeff

Love your holiday egg nog. Is it sold in any stores in the Charleston or Huntington West Virgina area? Last year it was sold in some of the Kroger stores in the area but so far this year I cannot find it. Thank You! Vicki

I just bought some Homestead Creamery milk for the first time and I'm wondering where to take the bottle. I shop at the Georgetown Whole Foods - will they accept it?

We have discovered your milk at the Kroger store close to us here in Virginia Beach and we have "switched" because the flavor is delicious and the glass bottles keep it fresh, plus there is less impact on the environment. Thanks so much for your dedication to a healthy and delicious product! Pam Racine PS I attribute my strong bones to all the fresh milk from glass bottles I drank as a child and which I also gave to my children.

I tried your milk at the Kentlands in Gaithersburg. It is delicious and I bought some. I have some questions: 1. Do you use pesticides? 2. If a cow is pregnant, how many days before the birth of the calf do you stop milking the cow. 3. How is the content of the milk different when a cow is close to giving birth?

The home delivery dairy that we have been using for some time recently stopped deliveries to our area (Virginia Beach). We were devestated as we not only received their milk but also purchased meats, eggs, etc from this farm. While I am still trying to locate a source of meats and eggs for our family, I was pleasantly surprised to find your milk at our local Kroger yesterday. I rarely go to Kroger however, it seems that will change after drinking your milk. Thank you for a great product. I was disappointed to find that you don't have a website offering info about your dairy. I will call your office and ask that questions not answered in this discussion.

I have recently started to dabble in home cheese making and have had some semi-good results and not so good results - and I stumbled upon your milk at Earth Fare today and thought...let's give this a try - and withing seconds of starting my mozzarella I noticed a HUGE difference. It's all in the milk! I only wished you had a dairy farm in my neck of the woods and delivered here :) I will definitely use your milk, and only your milk for all my cheese making needs as well as for my family! Thank you so much for providing such a great quality milk!!!!

Your lemonade and chocolate milk is heavenly. I am so glad my Kroger store is close by to purchase them. Don't change anything about the taste of either of these products.

My husband has completely stopped consuming all milk products because of the antibiotics and hormones. I am trying to convince him to try this product. I love the flavored milks as well as the white. I didn't know you also made ice cream, I guess I'll have to ask my local Kroger about that. Thank you for giving us a wholesome product.

I've been an avid lover of your dairy for the past year since a friend of mine introduced it to me. Your creamline has always been my top purchase. I've recently been researching milk more and found that raw milk is growing more and more support due to more research coming out about its health benefits in comparison to processed milk(homogenized, pasteurized, and ultra-pasteurized). Are you making the push to that direction as well? I would love for a raw option!! Thanks!

Can't believe i've lived in Rke since 1970 and am just now really learning about your operation. I wish you had lists of items available on your website. Guess I'll just have to drive out to Wirtz and inspect. Am looking forward to it.

hi, I have recently moved to Morgantown, WV and found your milk in the Kroger grocery store. However, I was wondering whether you sell milk with cream on top, non-homogenized. Will you do that soon? Or is it just that Kroger does not carry the non-homogenized line? Also, any hope for yoghurt from you with cream on the top in Morgantown grocery stores? Thank you, Dana

I just found your milk and cream at a local grocery store and it is fantastic. One question: Well, two: What percentage milk fat is in your heavy cream? Are there any additives, natural or otherwise, such as carrageenan, in the heavy cream?

I just wanted to tell you how much my daughter LOVES your chocolate milk! She was born with Down syndrome and within the first 3 months of her life, she had 2 major heart surgeries. Because she was so weak from her heart defect, she did not drink from a bottle. So, we fed her through a g-tube that was surgically placed in her stomach. With the help of a speech therapist, it took us almost a year and a half to finally teach her how to drink from a straw. That was only the 1st challenge. The 2nd challenge was finding a drink that she really liked so that she would want to continue drinking throughout the day. We hit the jackpot when we recently moved next door to a Whole Foods. I bought a bottle of your chocolate milk and the rest is history! She LOVES IT!!! She went from only drinking a few ounces a day to now getting 24 ounces a day- which is the amount recommended by her doctor. We also buy your skim milk and butter and love those as well :) Keep up the great work!!!
