Trickling Springs Creamery was founded in 2001 by two friends who aimed to produce fresh, exceptional- tasting dairy products while promoting local farmers doing an excellent job with their farms. The founders started by establishing strict guidelines for the family farms producing their milk. The farmers were required to maintain grass-fed, heritage breed cows, produce very clean milk (as measured by SCC & SPC counts), and use no synthetic hormones. The founders offered to pay farmers above average prices for maintaining these high standards. Trickling Springs Creamery would then process the milk as minimally as allowed by law. These principles are still followed and in many cases have been strengthened to more strict standards of feeding and sustainability.
All our dairy products are minimally processed using low-temp pasteurization, simple ingredients, and no additives to our whole milk and creams. In 2002, we became certified as an organic processor and started selling our organic products throughout the greater Mid-Atlantic region. As our reputation for quality organic grass-fed dairy products grew, we were privileged to be able to expand distribution throughout the eastern seaboard region.
