Saturday & Sundays / All throughout JULY / 12:00pm – 4:00pm

All proceeds (and donations) will go toward building a new SMC playground. South Mountain Creamery is a destination for thousands of kids each year. Your kids can come to learn about agriculture, see how their food is grown, and pet the cows. One of the big attractions, believe it or not, has been our giant cow playground. Well, it’s seen better days and it’s time to give the kids something new. Play grounds are expensive, so we thought we would create a WIN WIN: a fresh tasty country dinner outing benefiting the new playground. Enjoy the grub or just drop off a donation.

Tony Brusco, CEO, shares the inspiration for the fund raising aspect of the event.

“South Mountain Creamery is a destination for thousands of kids each year. We get big school groups and just folks stopping in. At SMC kids get to learn about agriculture, see how their food is grown and visit the cows. One of the big attractions has always been our giant cow play ground. Well, it’s seen better days and it’s time to give the kids something new. Play grounds are expensive, so we thought we would create a WIN WIN situation, a fresh tasty country dinner outing benefiting the new playground.”

South Mountain Creamery is known for its fresh-from-the-cow pasture raised dairy products, its grass-fed beef and Certified Humane, Cage-Free eggs. It offers customers an unmatched virtual farmers market, where they can shop online and receive local, farm-fresh products including fresh produce and meals prepared in its commercial kitchen, delivered to their doorstep. At the food truck event, Tony and his team will be cooking up the fresh products the farm produces with recipes created in their commercial kitchen. Hungry visitors will be able to eat right on the farm.

“We hope to make Food Truck on the Farm a regular feature of visiting SMC. We’ll be changing up the menu every week featuring local, in-season ingredients. We want people to enjoy their time here and giving them a dining option, we hope will be both an added convenience and a way to learn about local foods. Our cows are always up for visitors and are happy to show off how they get milked from 1:30pm-4:30pm. The big highlight of the day is the calf feeding at 4pm. It’s all part of the working farm experience,” Tony says proudly.

South Mountain Creamery is a family run business. Three generations work on the farm. It began as a dairy in 1981, opened the first on-farm dairy processing plant in 2001 and began home delivery service in 2003. It now delivers with in 90 miles of the farm and has become the largest most efficient home delivery service in the area serving over 9,000 families.

Daily Activities

Located in the heart of the Civil War Heritage area, South Mountain Creamery is open 365 days a year, rain or shine, and we love visitors. Guests are welcome to visit and take a guided or self-guided tour of the property, along with taking in various daily scheduled activities.

Stop by and have the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of a real working farm. The cows are always up for company. Pet the calves, see the milking parlor, and stop in at the maternity ward. You never know you may even get to see a calf come into the world. There are a couple of highlights to consider:

Feed a baby calfFeed the Calves
4:00 pm daily

Our calves are bottle fed every day at 4pm in our calf barn. Bottle feeding them ensures they get the proper nutrition and plenty of food to grow on. Arrive early if you are interested in participating in the 4:00pm daily calf feeding. We only have so many babies, so we provide bottles to visitors for feeding on a first come, first serve basis. They get quite rambunctious at feeding time so it’s fun to be around for this.

Watch the cows being milked
Starting at 1:30 daily

Our milking parlor is always open for viewing. But you can see it in action starting around 1:30pm every day, running until about 4:30pm. Our girls get milked twice a day. Once at 1:30AM and at 1:30PM they are ready again. It’s quite an interesting site to see them file in happily to do their job. They give about 8 gallons of milk per day. The milk is quickly chilled and goes right into our production plant to be bottled, made into butter, yogurt, ice cream and more.
