Fresh Products from Family Farms
With dreams of preserving the family farm for future generations, two dairy farmers combined efforts to open Homestead Creamery in 2001 with the goal of marketing their dairy products directly to consumers. Today, Homestead Creamery is made up of a network of small, locally owned dairy farms run by families who believe in the value of an honest day’s work. Each family is dedicated to the quality of life for the cows and the quality of products for our customers. Our farm families include Stoneybrook Dairy, Goldenview Dairy, Redvale Dairy, Whispering Oaks Farm, Riverbend Dairy and Homeland Jerseys.
Ensuring the dairy farm will survive for future generations was a big goal for the Montgomery family. Donnie Montgomery farmed with his dad and knew he wanted the same opportunity for his children. Looking to the future, he co-founded Homestead Creamery in 2001 to help make that a possibility. His son Jamie is now the 4th generation to operate the farm on the family’s land.
Glade Hill, Virginia
The Bowers have farmed in Glade Hill for 3 generations. While in his mid-twenties, David Bower co-founded Homestead Creamery and became president of the company. He long dreamed of bottling milk that his cows produced as a way to help ensure the farm’s profitability. Dave’s sons are looking forward to carrying on the tradition as the 4th generation.
Whispering Oaks Farm
Rocky Mount, Virginia
Running a family dairy is not an individual endeavor. Seth Jamison farms with his wife Ruth and their children along with part-time help from Seth's parents. They are dedicated to good stewardship of their cows and land; and with an eye for the future they hope to continue for generations to come!
