Homestead Creamery

All the milk at Homestead Creamery comes from two local farms, both in their third and fourth generations of family ownership.  The milk is free of all hormones and antibiotics, and because the milk is sold in recycled glass bottles it tastes fresher longer and is more environmentally friendly. Note: Our Farm to Market slide shows currently feature farmers and producers from our South and MidAtlantic Regions. We hope to expand to others in the future.

Your milk bottle says "no artificial hormones" does that mean there are hormones added just not artificial ones? Thanks

Valentina says …

Donna Timmons says …

I am lactose intolerant. Will you every make lactose free milk available ? Right now I just have to chew up one "Lactaid" before I drink your wonderful creamy milk. Thank you for your interest in making a good tasting glass of milk. I live in Georgia and buy your milk at Kroger in Perry, GA.

Love your milk !! Would you tell me if the sugar in your milk is naturally there or if it is added ? I'm trying to eat a little less sugar :)

Nikki - Community Moderator says …

@VICKI - We do not produce this milk so I would suggest following up with Homestead to find out!

Donna says …

We live in GA and have discovered your milk at Kroegers Your buttermilk is really good. I haven't drank buttermilk for years (only used it for baking) but your is very tasty. I have been wondering, since you say it's not 'organic' do the cows eat GMO products? When we get to VA anywhere near your farm we hope to try your ice cream, so far it is not sold here.

I have always been a milk drinker but now I have gone back to my high school days. The milk from Homestead is delicious!!! It has energized my body so much that I will be drinking it exclusively from now on. I drink on average 1/2 gallon per day of Chocolate milk in the summer and even more in the winter season. Thanks Homestead, keep up the healthy work. BB

I like to know your process of milk production and energy thanks.

Lynn Mosko says …

My sister tells me the buttermilk is the best on the market and she should know!! Our problem is Kroger in Bluefield (Bluewell WV) does not carry the buttermilk and the Kroger in Princeton is very limited as to the amount delivered to them and we have only found the buttermilk in stock once.. I would love to get the buttermilk at Bluewell Kroger, close to my home. I have tried the other milk products and the are the best. Thank you

Gail says …

i would like to buy a 1/2 gal. And a quart size bottle to put my milk in. Your milk is not available in our area and I would at least like to use the bottles until the milk is available. Thank you so much for your help.

Hi,since ı have broken my ancle thıs winter ı was in search for one of the best calcium sources raw mılk and ı came across homestead creamery.I heard that ın order to preserve the good calcium and mineral content we need to get mılk directly from the cow.,boil it 10 ,15 minutes and drink ıt.,otherwise ultrapasteurisation proses is destroying all the good properties in the milk.I would like to learn which method is used for pasteurisation in your farms.Thank you for your information

Alan says …

Lets just say I have been cooking and baking for close to 40 years now. My local Kroger started carrying your products several years ago. The buttermilk took my biscuits and waffles to a level beyond excellent. The creamline milk makes my chocolate, coconut, butterscotch etc. pies winners. Whenever the peppermint ice cream is available, usually close to the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons, (NOT HOLIDAYS), I usually stock up for the year. Thank goodness the dairy is only a few hours away

Maria says …

do you sell A2 milk or raw milk?

Sharon Steele says …

Hi, I love your milk!! I use to drive 45 minutes from below Monroe NC to Mint Hill, NC just to buy it at Lowe's Foods.I wanted to ask if you are now selling your milk at the Whole Foods Market in Charlotte, NC. If so I would make the long trip just to buy it. I can not tell you how much we love your milk and appreciate what you are doing. I only wish we lived closer to where you are. Thanks, Sharon Steele

I have always loved your products - egg nog is wonderful!!!!! Recently I have been seeing CUSTARD. I know what egg custard is and love it in many recipes but I have never seen LIQUID CUSTARD. Please advise - Thank You!!!

Jan Pierce says …

A huge "Thank you" to Homestead Creamery for their "wonderful" All Natural Eggnog. My grandfather was a dairy farmer back in the 30's and 40's and before that . Because of the availability of the needed products my mother was able to make eggnog that I believe tasted like yours. It's one of my "fond" memories. Thank you for transporting me back to that period of time and cherished memories.

Are your cows fed on genetically modified foods ?

Galina says …

Hello, I have been buying Homestead buttermilk in a glass bottle for years in Whole foods Gaithersburg, MD location. I think It is great product it is the best buttermilk I have ever had and I have tried different brands! I was very disappointed to find out recently that Whole Foods stopped carry this buttermilk. I really hope they bring this product back. Where else I can by this wonderful buttermilk? Thanks, Galina.

Mary Coe says …

I had a chance to enjoy some of your milk not long ago. A friend who gets it from your delivery truck in Roanoke furnished the experience. Please let me know if you deliver to Roanoke county, Northeast in the Hollins district. I would also like some prices, etc. days of delivery in this area, etc.

Melissa says …

I was hoping to find that you were cruelty free, but selling off your male calves at the age of 4-7 days seems pretty cruel to me.

brenda schrock says …
