Farmer-Owned for over 110 Years
Please visit often for the latest news, new product announcements, and information on events surrounding the more than 200 local family dairy farms that own this business. As a farmer-owned cooperative, and producer of cultured dairy food products and hard cheeses for over 110 years, Westby Cooperative Creamery has a unique perspective on the dairy industry; from farm-to-fridge and everything in between.
The dairy business is a daily business. Cow care is 24/7/365, with cows being fed and milked at least twice a day, every day of the year. That's how everything starts at Westby Cooperative Creamery, with fresh milk delivered daily by our member-owners to produce the highest quality and best tasting dairy food products.
Westby Cooperative Creamery is unique in many ways, with one distinction being the milk that our patron-members produce. All of our members produce r-BST-free milk*, some of which is also certified-organic milk. From these two milk sources our creamery has the flexibility and creativity to produce dairy food products that meet the needs of a diverse and changing food industry marketplace. (*No significant difference has been shown between milk from rBST/rBGH treated or non rBST/rBGH treated cows.)
When you take home Westby brand products from your local grocery store, or trust us to manufacture your private label brand products, or purchase our products as ingredients in the foods you manufacture, or specify Westby brand products for your school cafeteria, hospital or restaurant menu, you will - Take home country goodness!
