Tucked into Vermont’s Champlain Valley, Kimball Brook Farm is home to a herd of over 200 Jerseys and Holsteins that is responsible for a complete, nutritious health food: Vermont organic milk!
JD and Cheryl began transitioning the 220-cow farm to an organic dairy in 2003. Kimball Brook Farm became one of the largest certified-organic dairy operations in the state of Vermont. The first shipment of organic milk was in September 2005.
In 2010, they began the process of opening their own creamery. During this time, they received the Vermont Dairy Farm of the Year award in June 2011. Their dreams of opening a creamery became a reality on May 17, 2012 — that was the official opening of Green Mountain Organic Creamery, located in Hinesburg (in the former Saputo cheese plant).
Our herd consists of Holsteins, Jerseys and Jersey/Holstein crosses. During the growing season, our cows and heifers (teenagers) graze on the lush grass our pastures provide. Our milkers also get some mixed legumes and grains at the barn to provide them with the energy they need to maintain a healthy body condition so that they can make our great organic milk.
At Kimball Brook Farm, it is our belief that organic farming is not only better food for us but also for our herd and the environment. Part of what makes Vermont so special is its beautiful landscape. By farming organically, we preserve the farmland that our cows graze on and the land that produces the hay that feeds our cows all winter. We believe that by maintaining the health of the land and the health of the cows, we can provide our consumers with fantastic organic milk free of growth hormones, GMOs, pesticides, herbicides, and antibiotics.
Kimball Brook Farm’s organic milks, creams, and teas are premium products kept close to the land. By staying local and organic, we bring to our customers healthful and delicious dairy and tea that supports good nutrition, respects the environment, and promotes the well-being of our herd.
The Creamery staff are proud to assemble, bottle, and package all of the Kimball Brook Farm products, including whole milk, half-and-half milks, skim milk, creams, half-and-half, chocolate milk, maple milk, iced cappuccino in mocha and coffee flavors, cultured butter, and buttermilk. We also brew and bottle organic iced teas, (black sweet and unsweetened teas, and green sweet and unsweetened teas), brewed from a local pristine water sourced from Stockbridge, Vermont.
Our products can be found locally at Hunger Mountain Co-op and many grocers throughout New England, New York, and parts of the southern East Coast. Local stores can be found on our website, kimballbrookfarm.com, by viewing the “Find Us” page.
