Woodbourne Creamery

grazing cows
Woodbourne Creamery is Montgomery County’s first all new dairy facility in sixty years.  In addition, we are the first all pasture robotic milking facility in North America.  We are now licensed as a Grade A dairy and processing facility and are now selling our Golden Guernsey Creamline milk at the market.  We are testing out our cheese and will have that available soon.

We installed a Delaval VMS which is a robotic milking system.  The VMS stands for "Voluntary Milking System".  Our cows come in to be milked when they want, typically between two to three times per day.  Learn more about our grazing operation and why our cows thrive on eating grass all day long.

We have a small herd of sixty Guernsey cows and have been raising them since 2001.  Guernsey milk is distinctively different than store bought milk in that it is naturally high in beta carotene so has a slightly yellow color.  In addition, 96% of Guernseys produce only beta Casein A2 protein, which some people believe may be better for their health.  

We raise our cows in a sustainable manner.  We treat our cows like we treat our children, so we vaccinnate them all once per year and if they ever get sick, we will treat them as medically necessary to get them healthy per our veterinarian recommendation.  We do not use any growth hormones.
