Description Sunrise Meadows Dairy is a family owned farm that is starting an on-farm creamery. We are in south central Minnesota, one hour from Minneapolis. We use rotational grazing and sustainable practices. We do not use bovine growth hormone in our herd of thirty five Brown Swiss and Milking Shorthorn cows. We are not certified organic, but observe many organic practices. Our dairy products that we will be producing will be sold as grass-fed. We are pursuing local markets for our dairy products. We have been selling grass-fed beef, free range eggs, and raw milk from our farm to local customers. With the creamery starting we need another family to join us to tackle the daily duties of the farm, pasteurization and bottling, and distributing products. If the chemistry is right, we would be happy to mentor a family to become the managers of the farm as we reach our retirement years. Financial involvement in the creamery venture would be welcome at this time, but is not required. On-farm housing is not available at this time. There are local rental and home purchase options. We are a Christian family with six children. They are high school and college/grad school age. We are in our young 50's ; ). No smoking or alcohol use.
