As of April 2014, Snowville Creamery is only sourcing raw milk from cows that are fed Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) free feed! While the farms we work with provide their cows with a daily diet of about 75% pasture or preserved grass, they also can feed the cows an average of 10 pounds of grain per day. Feeding some grain helps to ensure the cows get their required amounts of energy and protein daily. And now all of this feed is made up of only GMO free ingredients.
One of our largest farms, Hamm Valley Farms, has been using this non-GMO feed since
November 2013. In reference to the new feed, Chris Hamm, the owner, says “I swear by it, our milk production has increased as well as our butterfat and protein in our milk.”
