Top quality dairy products start with fresh quality raw materials. To insure that only top quality milk is used in Wapsie Valley Creamery products, every dairy herd and dairy farm supplying milk is inspected by three government agencies. Each farm is under the inspection of the
- Iowa Public Health Department
- Iowa Department of Agriculture
- S. Public Health Department
In addition, we employ our own field staff to monitor and advise our milk producers to insure that our own high quality standards are consistently achieved.
To ensure that all of the milk comes from cows that are treated properly our suppliers are required to participate in the Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (F.A.R.M.) program. This program monitors cow health on the farm to ensure proper care is given to the cows that produce milk for us.
