Kimball Brook Farm / Green Mountain Organic Creamery
Kimball Brook Farm, a small dairy farm tucked into the Champlain Valley, is one of Vermont’s newest milk producer. Several years ago, farmers Cheryl and JD DeVos started dreaming of ways they could keep the small-scale dairy farm that had been in their family for over 50 years going. Their plan? Build a creamery where they could bottle their own milk and sell it directly to customers.
JD and Cheryl milk 200 Jersey and Holstein cows down in North Ferrisburgh. The farm is certified organic and the cows are out grazing pasture all through the warm months of summer. The farm has been honored as one of the best dairies in the state – in 2011 JD and Cheryl were recognized for their stewardship of their land and their herd in receiving the 2011 Vermont Dairy Farm of the Year award.
After more than 5 years of planning, we welcomed their milk to our shelves in 2012. Their new Green Mountain Organic Creamery is right on Rte. 116 in Hinesburg. They share the building with Vermont Smoke and Cure, forming an important new center for local food infrastructure.
Cheryl and JD are excited to be the closest dairy and creamery to City Market, remarking that as local farmers they have an open door policy – any customer that wants to come visit will be welcome to stop by. Cheryl says, “It will be fun to have them!”
You can find Kimball Brook's milks in our Perishables cooler.
