This September marks the tenth anniversary of Iowa’s own Farmers Creamery. For over ten years, Farmers Creamery has provided organic, healthy dairy products made from grass-fed cows. This unique creamery—focused on minimal-processing and local collaboration–has created a competitive edge for the Kalona SuperNaturalTM brand.
During the late 1990s, a local Amish leader was looking for a milk processing facility for the Amish dairy farmers. It wasn’t until 2002 that Bill Evans was hired to help finance the creamery. Over the next several years, production began and one by one, customers were added.
In 2005, Bill Evans took over as President at Farmers Creamery. Six short years later, in 2011, over 38,000 gallons of milk were being bottled each month. Since then, things haven’t slowed down. Now, in 2014, tover 75,000 gallons of milk is bottled and distributed each month.
“These past ten years have been packed with its ups and downs,” says Bill Evans, CEO of Farmers Creamery. “As a company, we have come such a long way. Originally, there were six employees and now we have over 30. Every day is exciting and we absolutely love what we do.”
In order to celebrate this momentous occasion, Farmers Creamery would like to invite the public to a celebration of ten wonderful years on September 19 from 11 am to 2 pm. Enjoy games for the whole family as well as plant tours between 11 am and 1 pm.
