One Middletown farm has recently added some new products to their business, while staying true to the family’s heritage: dairy farming. Dairy farming is a way of life for the family at Walnut Ridge Farm. They have been farming dairy cattle since 1936. Like so many in our area, this farm is family owned and operated, and has been for several generations. We recently spoke to Pam Moser from Moo Cow Creamery at Walnut Ridge Farm to learn more about the excitement around their new dairy products. Pam and her husband Danny own and operate the farm, where their children and grandchildren also help out. Pam tells us that dairy farming has changed a lot over the past few years, and she sees consumers becoming more focused on where their food is coming from, and more of a passion to buy locally. The milk at Moo Cow Creamery is unique, as they have a high component herd. This factor not only makes a tasty whole milk for drinking, but the sweeter and richer flavor they produce is also more desirable for products such as cheese, butter and ice cream. These factors encouraged the family to pursue a line of farm fresh products. Pam’s daughter Amber also brought her experience working at another creamery and is using her knowledge to help in the family’s latest venture. Pam says the response to these products has been incredible. Consumers are learning about their new fresh products like cheese and butter, and the word is spreading.
Moo Cow Creamery’s products can be purchased at the farm located at 3935 Bussard Road in Middletown, by calling 240-549-9183, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find them on Facebook at Walnut Ridge Farm/Moo Cow Creamery. They hope to soon have their dairy products available at local stores and farmers markets soon!
