The holidays should revolve around the experiences you have with the ones you love, but that doesn’t mean the “extra stuff", like nourishing food and drink on the table, must be forgotten. In fact, it’s a wonderful time of year to go above and beyond with cuisine, especially when the results are down right delicious and not necessarily dependent upon the amount of time put in. When you start with real, wholesome products and ingredients, the rest takes care of itself.

Summer is here and that means vacation for many of our customers. The beautiful thing about vacation is, at its core, vacation is just about “the action of leaving something one previously occupied”. This means, even if you’re not darting off to a lake or beach house or local pool, you can still partake in vacation fun by enjoying rest and relaxation right at home.

When it comes to being environmentally friendly, an organization's’ walk should always come before their talk. However, it’s not uncommon for consumers to create a narrative in their minds about a product or service based solely on a brand’s well crafted message, with no regard to the brand’s day to day operations. At Dutch Meadows, we measure each operation against the goal to keep farming communities vibrant and to produce real, nutrient-dense, farm fresh food for the benefit of our health and the benefit of future generations to come. So, when we realized our yogurt division was not optimized for such a goal, we began to take steps to rectify it.

They really don't care if we farm organically, if we bottle fresh raw milk, or if we treat our animals with respect and never give them antibiotics or inject them with artificial hormones to make them grow faster. The only thing they really care about and do not like is the fact that we sell to the consumer. They think that all the money we work so hard to make could be theirs if they could only put us out of business.
