The coolest dairy cooler in town.
The Breadroot dairy cooler houses a wide array of products, ranging from raw cheese, kefir, and local eggs to cream cheese, yogurt, and milk. Some of the brands carried include Nancy’s, Kalona, Straus and Organic Valley. We also carry a selection of products from these local producers:
In addition to being one of our most popular local produce vendors, Cedar Creek Gardens of Midland, SD, provides us with most of our free-range eggs on a weekly basis. Their chickens are outdoors from sun-up until sun-down, and their range is the entire farm. Their feed, which is corn- and soy-free, is mixed by a neighboring farmer and includes locally grown peas, oats, and flax.
Organic Valley is a co-op of 1,834 farm families from around the country who produce a wide variety of organic farm products. Their website has a handy “Find Your Farmer” tool, and the closest one to us is the Bartel family in Lingle, WY. Their wide variety of product offerings includes raw cheeses and milk from exclusively grass-fed cows.
Patty Kelly of Lazy VC Kelly Ranch has been raising chickens her entire life. Her current flock of Red Sexlinks free-ranges all day on her 10-acre farm, and their supplemental feed includes organic corn, oats, peas, and barley. We don’t always have these in stock, but when we do, look for the deep blue carton!
Straus Family Creamery is a family-owned and operated business with the proud claim to being the first certified organic dairy west of the Mississippi River and the first 100% certified organic creamery in the United States. Their cows are not treated with any hormones or antibiotics, and they subsist on a diet of pasture grasses, hay, and feeds that are 100% certified organic and Verified Non-GMO. Their delicious ice creams are made without any additives, thickeners, or artificial ingredients and are a must-try, and their yogurts are equally delicious.
Kalona Supernatural is a company dedicated to small farms and organic practices. The average farm that provides their milk has 35 cows and is worked by hand. The milk they produce is grass-fed, hormone- and antibiotic-free, pasteurized at the lowest possible temperature, and never homogenized. Their products contain no stabilizers, and the salt used in their salted butter and cottage cheese is Celtic Sea Salt.
