Old Church Creamery Update

 

Dear Old Church Creamery customers,

We have temporarily closed our Creamery as we are moving our entire operation!  Our Jersey cows have already been moved to a farm in the Shenandoah Valley near Harrisonburg. We are partnering with a Mennonite farmer who will milk and care for our Jersey herd.

A few weeks ago we purchased upgraded equipment from a yogurt plant in Wisconsin, loaded it up on a 20 foot trailer and made the long drive back to Virginia.  Now we are installing the equipment and working with Hanover County, the Virginia Department of Health and the Virginia Department of Agriculture on approval of  all of the permits at our new location in Mechanicsville, Virginia.  We hope to be operating by early January 2017 with yogurt, kefir and milk!  

Thank you all for your continued patience with us as we complete all of the regulatory requirements for the new creamery! 

 

Our new creamery equipment...ready to be installed, serviced, and test run!
