When Jan and Rinske de Jong moved to America from Holland in 1985, they had a dream of building a family dairy farm. After settling in the southeast, they leased 55 cows, with the $ 5,000 they had saved back home in Holland. Working Cows Dairy was born. As their family and new dairy business grew, they supplemented their income by planting watermelons and selling them at a roadside fruit stand.
In 2006, with the help of their three sons, Mendy, Jonny, and Ike, Working Cows Dairy began the transition to a USDA Certified Organic Dairy. The mission at Working Cows Dairy is to satisfy the demanding taste buds of the Southeast with delectable, local, organic dairy products, and to become the premier processor of the finest organic dairy products in the Southeast.
Here at Working Cows Dairy, we like to think we raise happy cows. Everyday on our small family farm we work to provide lush green pastures for our herd to graze freely. In return, our cows provide milk that we minimally process and bottle right here on the farm. We believe in taking the extra time and steps to protect the milk’s original flavor, so "Just Shake It!" and enjoy.
