PastureLand Cooperative’s new “true raw milk” cheddar is the latest addition to our lineup of artisanal butter and cheeses available at www.pastureland.coop/buy/direct. Check our website for a full selection of artisan cheese including new cloth bound Meadowlark cheddar, and the Alpine Sisters.
All of our delicious butter and cheeses are made with the milk of our own grass-fed cows, grazing on live, lush pastures on family farms in the rolling hills of southeastern Minnesota. We are a small cooperative of family operated, grass-based dairy farms working together for the good of consumers, the environment, and member farmers to ensure a healthy, reliable community food source into the future.
PastureLand co-op members are committed to using sustainable farming methods: building the soil, grass varieties, and pasture eco-systems that nourish our animals. We take great pride in our ability to provide the high-quality pasture necessary for healthy dairy herds without having to supplement their diet with grain. Our cows receive of 100% of their diet from grass during the seven-month growing season, and are housed in sheltered pastures during the winter months.
All of PastureLand farms are certified organic, and have received organic and Food Alliance certification. We use no hormones or antibiotics to enhance growth or production.
