Organic Milk Products
Delicious and Nutritious
Our Amish dairy farming history goes back hundreds of years to when our forefathers were grazing cows in the alpine meadows of the Swiss Alps. Today the old world tradition continues – our small family dairy farms graze their cows on lush green pastures from early spring into late fall. Crops of corn and hay, rich in nutrients, are harvested with horses throughout the summer to provide feed for the cows during the winter months. This personal relationship between farmer, animal, and land produces milk rich in taste and nutrients.
Why We Like Glass Bottles
Our glass bottle further represents our idea of “Wholesome Values. Wholesome Food”. Instead of adding to landfills, we collect, sanitize, and reuse our half-gallon glass bottles. Simply return them to a store that sells Green Field Farms milk to receive a return of the bottle deposit.

Why Use Low-Temp Vat Pasteurization?
Milk heated to the lowest temperature allowable by law eliminates harmful bacteria but does not harm valuable nutrients. It also does not break down critical enzymes found naturally in milk, therefore providing a healthier milk choice.
Benefits of Low-Temp Vat Pasteurized Milk:
Rich in lactose and other important enzymes
Why Non-Homogenized Milk?
Milk does not require homogenization which uses high pressure to break down the butterfat particles. This allows vitamins, like A & D, to bond more easily with the larger butterfat particles. These larger particles are transported throughout the entire digestive tract where they release nutrients to the body. Green Field Farms’ Non-Homogenized milk is easy to identify by the natural layer of cream that rises to the top.
Benefits of Non-Homogenized Milk:
Butterfat particles stay in their natural state
Provides excellent nutrient delivery
