Hastings Dairy Tours & Milk from Farmstead Creamery

Updated 6/1/17
We're now booking dairy tours for the 2017 season, from May to October, and have set the dates for our annual special events open to the public. We also bottle fresh milk at our farmstead creamery to sell at the farm and local stores. Check out what we have to offer this season;

Buy Fresh Milk at Hastings Dairy  -  Open: Daily during daylight
Milk is bottled on-farm at Rowdy Cow Creamery. Processed in small batches using low temperature vat pasteurization. Milk is non-homogenized (cream rises to the top) whole milk bottled with minimal processing the way nature intended. Available in white, chocolate and a variety of flavors such as strawberry, blueberry, banana, root beer, cookies & cream and others. Rowdy Cow Creamery also makes strawberry cheesecake drinkable yogurt and delicious tea in two flavors. Check out the flavor schedule on the website to see which milk flavors and other products are available.
