We take good care of our cows! The BC SPCA provides an independent audit of our dairy operation and certifies that we meet or exceed their high standards of animal husbandry. Not only does this make financial sense as the truism “Happy cows make good milk” suggests, but we also take good care of our cows (and all of the animals on our farm) because it is morally the right thing to do.
As farmers we have taken on the responsibility of caring for these animals, and we take that responsibility seriously. See more about the SPCA standards at: BC SPCA
Environmental Partner Certification
The Land Conservancy certifies that we are actively improving our 68 acre piece of paradise. Our farm includes forests, riparian areas along Morningstar Creek, fields, a house and a working environment. It is habitat for dozens of different species of birds and ducks as well as fish (and water animals), deer, elk, cows, chickens, a farm family and a great bunch of employees. Caring for our land involved establishing balance so that we can all co-exist in a healthy way. Did you know that permanent pasture is a better carbon sink than Amazon jungle? And we have over 60 acres of it! Check it out at: The Land Concervancy
Canadian Quality Milk
CQM is a HACCP based milk quality program, designed to ensure that all of the milk produced on our farm is of the highest quality. HACCP plans identify possible risk points in any production process (in our case milking cows) and establishes protocols for minimizing those possible risks. We’re pleased to add yet another level of protection that assures that only the best milk is used to make our cheeses. Dairy Farmers of Canada
