“Organic is the conscience of modern agriculture.”
– Donald De Jong, Natural Prairie Dairy Founder and CEO
Take care of the cow
We ensure our employees do just that. A sustainable farm ecosystem means giving our cows the very best care.
Give back to the land
We believe organic farming requires the utmost respect for the land. So that’s exactly how we operate — giving back as much as we take while focusing on sustainability.
Meticulous = Quality
Everything leads up to creating the highest quality organic milk. We have been meticulous in developing a process that produces the freshest product that goes above and beyond traditional standards.
A day at Natural Prairie Dairy
At Natural Prairie Dairy, we care for our cows at every stage of life – beginning at their birth. Our heifer calves are born in our maternity barn, where our highly trained staff provides colostrum – milk that is rich with the nutrients and antibodies calves need to grow healthy and strong.
They are moved to our heifer ranch, where a team of experts give food and water essential to their growth. Placed in individual hutches, our team can monitor their health closely and administer that personalized care that is needed. Our hutches are bedded with sand, keeping our calves warm and comfortable.
As they get older, we move them to pens with other calves their age where they can socialize together. Our calves are raised at our heifer ranch until they are old enough to join the milking herd.
Our dedication to organic farming doesn’t stop here. We utilize the most advanced technology to help keep our process efficient and produce the best quality organic milk.
