Stremicks have now secured all of their milk supply from family-scale farmers of high integrity. They have also now fully participated in the Cornucopia dairy study and they will move up from a 1-cow rating to a 4-cow rating on our scorecard.
They should be congratulated and we hope their brand will be rewarded in the marketplace.
Stremicks Heritage Foods is a family-owned and operated dairy and we are committed to bringing our strong family values into all aspects of our company, from the humane and healthy treatment of the cows that produce the milk to the quality control of our manufacturing plant where it is bottled.
