Milton Creamery was started in 2006 as a joint venture between local Amish dairy farmers and the Musser family. Today, Milton Creamery is solely owned and operated by the Musser Family with the help of a few outside employees. We continue to use milk provided by local Amish families. Herds are managed and milked by the immediate family. All of the herds are less than sixty-five cows. The farmers that provide milk to Milton Creamery don't give their cows artificial growth hormones, like rBGH and rBST. The cows are grazed throughout much of the year. Over winter, the farmers continue to provide the cows with quality feed. Our Mennonite traditions value hard work, ingenuity, and simple living. Many of our neighbors are Old Order Amish. Although different, Mennonites and Amish are both Anabaptists, of Swiss heritage, and share many values. These common values made it easier for us to work together as dairy farmers and cheesemakers to start Milton Creamery.
