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

We live in Mechanicsville Va and shop at Krogers. We have 4 milk drinkers in the family. Now that we have tried your products we want no other. You have one of the finest products on the market. Keep up the good work.

Now then, if ONLY Homestead could supply RAW dairy products like milk, unsalted cheese and butter! Twenty-four states with visionary legislatures already do. It matters.

1.Is the corn you grow to feed the cows in the winter GM corn? 2. Do you use pesticides on the farms? 3.Also- how many cows are there that make Homestead Creamery Milk?

This milk is absolutely the best milk I have EVER had, and I've drank a lot of milk in my day. :) Thanks for such a quality product.

I discovered your milk at the local Whole Foods in Springfield, and love the buttermilk, I haven't had buttermilk like that since I was a youngster, when Thompson Dairy would deliver, I remember the evenings when my grandma, mom and I would enjoy big bowls of cornbread and buttermilk. I have Celiac Disease, and have had to avoid ice cream because most contain gluten. My question is does your ice cream contain gluten? If not, I will certainly buy it. You have a customer for life with your milk. I would like to also purchase your cream, but didn't see it at Whole Foods. Thank you. Marion Cooney

Homestead creamery non-homogenized milk is truly delicious. I had a question on whether the milk cows are grain-fed or grass-fed. I had read somewhere that milk that is from grass-fed cows, has a creamish tinge while milk from corn-fed cows is white-white. The Homestead creamery non-homogenized milk I have been buying recently, is of the super-white color. Thanks!

The Homestead Creamery quarts at the Durham, nc stores are always past the sell by date, and Krogers continues to leave them on the shelves, and never seem to get any new ones in. It is great ice cream, but the past due date is also poorly printed on the bottom of the container and it gets smudged so that you can not even tell what the date it. Someone needs to tell them to improve their carton, their distribution system and their relationship with a chain that could damage the creamery's reputation.

I really enjoy your milk products. I have 9 grandchildren and when they are here and I have your milk in my refrigerator Its gone so fast. When I have had the milk in the plastic bottles I can see a difference with my grandkids. Born in the late 40's I remember when milk was delivered to your home and the taste of fresh milk. I will continue to back your products and look forward to your ice cream.( I did not know you made ice cream) Bless you for your products and the best milk I have tasted in years.

My family members have checked two Whole Foods locations for this Homestead Creamery milk - Durham NC and Chapel Hill, NC - but neither store carries it. Where can I find the milk in the Raleigh/Durham area?

Dear Homestead Creamery- We love all your products. Last year (I think) we bought a bottle of your fantastic boiled custard, but have not seen any for sale for a while. Do you still sell it? Is it a seasonal thing? Thanks!

When is homestead creamery going to remove artificial colors from its products? Homestead markets its products as wholesome and healthy, and then adds garbage like artificial colors and preservatives. Such irresponsible behavior indicates that Homestead doesnt really know what its doing, or doesnt care about quality.

@Dan: Our Quality Standards do not allow any artificial ingredients, including artificial colors and/or artificial flavors, in the foods we sell. And Homestead Creamery does not add anything to their milk.

Hi Dan, I wished you had answered my earlier question about a raw milk option, even if you said that it's currently illegal to in the state of VA. At the time, I didn't know this but now I do from my own research. I wish your dairy would push for the legalization for raw milk in VA, especially with the growing debate and recent FDA sting operation on the Amish farm in PA. I wish I could support your creamery, but I no longer support pasteurized milk anymore due to the loss of nutrients and enzymes by heating milk. I still purchase your butter however if I don't have a raw option at the moment. It's a by far better, healthier option than margarine and fake spreads. On a side note, are your cows tested for A1 or A2 milk? Rob

Oops, sorry, I meant Donnie. Michael Bepko, if you could answer any of my questions, that would be welcomed too.

After doing extensive research into "FDA Approved" procedures regarding Milk Production and GMO seeds, it is a relief to know that Homestead Creamery is nearby and distributes to my local grocery store. After watching videos on Monsanto and their never-ending corruption in the world food market and infiltration into government stemming from FDA, EPA, Major elective branches to even the Supreme Court. It's given me a whole new insight into the "American Farmer" lifestyles and the struggles they face everyday from evil empires such as Monsanto and many other. Myself, being a "city slicker" originally used to never put much thought into the products I would buy from the local supermarkets. I'll never forget the day I heard something through word of mouth that "Milk causes cancer." I laughed. My response at the time was "They say everything causes cancer nowadays." I was such a fool at the time. I now realize the dangers of Monsanto and what these corporations pose to the world and to the "hometown farmers" of America. As long as Homestead Creamery continues to provide a natural growth environment, free of all hormones and continues to use their own natural feed and grass, they have won me over as a customer for the duration of me living within their market area!

I just wanted to say I love your lemonade that you offer. My family and I go through at least 3 bottles a week. It's so fresh tasting like it was just squeezed that day. It's sweet but not sugary and perfect for our hot days here in Northeast Ohio. The other lemonades are way too sweet and you offer a great competitive price and after the deposit the lemonade cost just as much as the chain brands. We are hooked to your lemonade and I wish we could try your milk but we have some lactose intolerance issues in our family. Anyways, please keep doing what you are doing because the quality is superb and we will always buy lemonade from you when we're not making our own.

Hello there, Homestead Creamery AND Whole Foods, My husband and I live in Roanoke, Virginia and are quite familiar with Homestead Creamery products. Perhaps we have taken them for granted because they are so available to us. We adore all of the products and use many of them. It is interesting to read comments from people who cannot get the products where they live. We have the opposite problem. We have no Whole Foods grocery store here in Roanoke! We just got our first Chipotle Mexican Grill and business has taken off like a rocket so we hope Whole Foods will give us a look when considering new locations for their wonderful stores. No question about it, we would make Whole Foods our "go to" store for all of our grocery needs. Thanks to both fine companies and keep up the good work! Elizabeth

Hi, I'm moving from the Marin County to C'ville, VA this summer. I thought one of the things I would miss most was organic milk in glass bottles. Now I am delighted to learn that I can probably buy Homestead Creamery's products in VA. I've read through the comments here to learn more. I think it is wonderful to see the awareness of and desire to have wholesome unadulterated milk from community (local) dairies. Thank you Homestead for providing a stand-up product. Love that you package your milk in reusable glass bottles and thank you, WF, for facilitating this.

One taste of this milk tells the story. It is fresh, creamy and no chemical after tastes. I absolutely love it and hope Whole Foods will continue to carry their products!
