Our History

Homestead Creamery is a small, locally-owned dairy processing plant nestled among the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Burnt Chimney, Virginia. With dreams of preserving the family farm for future generations and marketing product directly to consumers, two local dairy farmers combined efforts. In cooperation with a few local businessmen and their joint endeavors, these dreams became a reality. Homestead Creamery opened its doors for business in January of 2001!

Today, Homestead Creamery is made up of a small network of locally owned dairy farms that are run by families who believe in an honest day's work. Each farm is dedicated to the health and happiness of the cows and the quality of the products that are produced for the consumers.
